Day Nine at Kate and Robert's House

Kate and Robert's House

sunny 19 °C

This morning we walked to the train station and went to London. When we got to Victoria Station I needed the washroom but they don't have free washrooms in the transit system. You have to pay 30pence at the turnstiles to get in to pee. At first I thought "I'm not paying to pee", but then I decided that it was more important to be comfortable and I found the money. We bought a GPS, called a SAT NAV here, to use when we rent the car when we come back to England in a week or so. Neil found a GPS that is exactly like the one he has in the MGB sports car at home. It should make our travels around England somewhat easier. While we were in the store, a woman and I bumped into each other and she dropped her heavy cell phone on my right foot. I didn't think much of it but tonight my foot is sore. We also went to the Portobello Road Market. It sure was crowded with people. I think 90% of the people there were tourists like Neil and me. There were lots of antiques for sale as well a lots of jewellery. I did see some toys but they were quite expensive because they were antique. We had a very delicious falafal wrap from a roadside stand. On our way back to the Tube station we passed a shop that showed fused glass in the window. We went inside and were blown away by the beauty and variety of the pieces. We bought a small tea light holder and I took lots of pictures. We had been planning on visiting the Tate Modern but my feet were sore and we were both tired from walking so we headed back to Beckenham. Tonight Robert made two kinds of homemade pizza and they were both delicious. Tomorrow morning we have to get up at 4:00AM to catch our flight to Rome. Gotta get to bed!
