It's been two days packed full of sightseeing, which is no good for blogger storytelling. It's almost midnight now - we capped the day off by seeing "One Man, Two Guvnors".
I had missed it on Broadway, so I was glad to catch it in the West End. It's a rewrite/update of a Commedia play and, like most Commedia, it's excellent with the humor and characters and weak on the exposition/plot. This one included live music with a variety of percussion solos - everything from a washboard to spoons to a kettle drum to a bare chest. It was a lot of fun to see.
All of which is to say that it's late, so I shall be brief.
After going here yesterday:
We got lunch here:
Which has a very cool interior:
Next we went shopping at Covent Garden
where I thoroughly enjoyed a stall that sells old printing tools:
I bought a few things here. :)
After getting a pasty:
from a pie shop:
we headed back towards our hotel for dinner here:
before taking a quick stroll around the neighborhood and turning into bed.
That's Day One. Next up, Day Two!
