London’s Calling!

14 Aug

We arrived in England today, after a very, very long trip!  I had what was perhaps one of the best flights of my life, in that I fell asleep immediately after take off and woke up thirty minutes before landing. Here are a few “in flight” photos taken just before landing.

We arrived in Dorking this evening, where we will be staying until we depart for Brighton on Sunday. Dorking is quite a lovely little town, which we’ve enjoyed exploring. This afternoon we found a nice church, walked along the river bank and then wandered along the high street.

We decided to have dinner in our hotel, a pub, the White Horse. I had a simple Nicoise salad topped with a grilled, free range chicken breast and quail eggs. It was absolutely wonderful, and reminded me of how delicious and simple British food can be. The British have been doing “grass fed” and “free range” for as long as I can remember, and I always appreciate their simple and clean approach to eating.

Finally, I really miss Sashi, and appreciate her attempt to come in my suitcase with me, as showcased below!
