Cloudy day in London. Walked along Thames River. Saw Shakespeare's Globe, the London Eye, Big Ben, the Palace of Westminster, Parliament Square, Horse Guards Parade, St. James Park, The Mall, Trafalgar Square, Covent Garden, Piccadilly Circus, Soho, Chinatown, Spitalfields, and near Liverpool Street.
How much we walked in one day!
In the city- by Liverpool Street station.
Yauatcha and Soho views.
Piccadilly Circus and Soho, where we are at Yauatcha, a high-end Chinese restaurant. Had a delicious peach and pear cocktail, truffle and wild mushroom spring rolls, pork and prawn shumai, vegetable fried rice, and truffle edamame buns. The truffle spring rolls were one of the most delicious foods I've ever had.

Slept in and went to Fego for breakfast again (had the same exact thing). Julia drove us to Windsor, where we toured the famous Windsor Castle after awful traffic and parking situations. The queen and royal family was not there, but the castle was rich in historical facts and beauty. We then walked to stores around the Castle. After, we got back, I packed up, and we took the train to London (and the tube as well) to Julia's apartment in Bermondsey. I met her roommate, Alex. We then walked to Valentina, a wonderful Italian restaurant that Beckham goes to all the time. Julia had a margarita pizza and I had Italian sausage spaghetti wrapped in a big prosciutto ball with tomato sauce and tons of mozzarella and Parmesan cheese. We then walked a bit on the sidewalk along Thames River so I could get a view of the beautiful night lights. We headed back early so that we could wake up early the next day.
Dinner and walking along Thames River in Julia's neighborhood.

Arrived at 8 am from unlucky flights. Julia picked me up at the airport and we drove through the beautiful countryside to Surrey. Went to brunch at Fego and took her dogs, Texie and Max to the forest for a walk. Took a nap, went to see Birmingham Palace and the surrounding beautiful neighborhood. Watched Bad Education (British TV show) while eating local Indian food, and went to bed early.

Cobham neighborhood and Fego- a delicious breakfast place in town! Had a Belgian Mokachino and the Mediterranean plate (poached eggs, avocado, tomatoes, pesto, peppers, mushrooms, spinach, halloumi, and two pieces of toast)!
