There is a certain inevitability about London, one shall run out of time before one runs out of pubs. We had a great time just recently in London, and each day we would return to a pub which we really liked and finished off a perfect day with a really good pint. Rather than try to visit several different pubs, we concentrated on one, Angel, in Islington. I did not get through their entire list of beers, but made a substantial dent. The food was excellent, tried the fish and chips and a holiday treat with Yorkshire pudding, chicken breasts, potatoes, steamed brussel sprouts and carrots topped off with two helpings of gravy. Man, what a treat. My wife and I shared one meal, and it was very filling.
Now back to the more important stuff, beer. I tried a pilsener from Turkey, with a strong after taste of cardboard, an India Pale Ale with an overwhelming junniper berry flavour, two different ales with mixed emotions and finally a fine lager from the Czechs. My, my what a nice beer. To show my appreciation for this fine beer, over a period of four evenings I drank several bottles.
Thanks again to the person who suggested Rosebery Hall, a dorm for the London School of Economics. Great location, good bus and tube connections, quiet, clean, safe and comfortable. The 38 bus between Islington and Victoria station is really convenient. It passes on Charing Cross Road, China Town and Leister Square. December is a great time to visit London. Fewer tourists, greater access to theatre tickets. Wicked and Billy Eliott not to be missed. Really appreciated those productions.
If you appreciate beautiful poeple try visiting Harrods. They easily have the most beautiful sales ladies and the handsomest young clerks in the world. Better than Gallery Lafayette in Paris. Very friendly youngsters. Man what a town. I could go on forever.
