After we arrived, I slept for a couple of hours, then headed out to see some sights and get some dinner.
I wanted to end up at Piccolino, but I didn't want to take my usual route to Piccadilly Circus and up Regent Street. Instead I took the tube to Oxford Circus, and strolled along Oxford Street.
I turned south and strolled through Soho Square Garden, down several colorful street toward Charing Cross Road.
On the corner of Charing Cross and Shaftesbury is the Palace Theatre, where Priscilla Queen of the Desert is playing. I think
I am going to have to make time to see this show.
I saw this beautiful couple walking toward Leicester Square.
I imagine that they were heading out to dinner and the theatre.
There are many great restaurants on Heddon Street,
including the Absolut Ice Bar, another favorite stop
Today I decided to sit outside at another
Italian restaurant on the street, a small,
cozy place called La Locanda.
I sipped a lovely limoncello, and watched as people passed by enjoying the evening.
I headed back to my hotel, and made a stop at Waitrose, a market around the corner by the Gloucester Road Tube Station.
I especially like the ham in the UK. There are so many varieties from different regions, and I love sampling them all. The young woman working in the deli was nice enough to let me snap a photo of her as she was slicing my ham.
as I walked by.
