Visiting London I

My hair today was a mess due to not being washed properly because of the freezing water yesterday. I could have showered again in the morning but laziness took the best of me and left me sleeping until it was time eat breakfast. Tea and scones were offered by the house (the landlady is a kind heart) but my Euterpe, that was hell of an experience. Here is why: the teapot was impossible to open. It took me 10 min and a youtube video to be able to drink tea. It was a strange minimalist teapot, a Stelton Emma, it felt like the name of my nemesis.

Later on I went to St. Paul, Tate Modern, visited Old London, saw the EY hq with Picasso coloured columns in the inside and then took the train to Camden Town. The logic of all? There wasn’t. Actually, I just wanted to check if the market was still what I remembered it to be when I visited it almost 5 years ago I think. And yeah, still the same crowded and colourful, and with several stands with delicious street food.

Then it was back again to Oxford Street. I liked in particular Uniqlo, I have never been in its store previously, but their style suits me. Since I was feeling Japanese, dinner was sushi and udon. And my Euterpe, I ate the best sushi and udon I could have ever asked for. It was amazing. I thought I knew what was Japanese cousine, but I was wrong. Taro, really worthy to be remembered.

Later I also went to M&M’S World and Lego Shop, both of them were really impressive, and felt like becoming a child again.

I went home and took a nice shower (this time with warm water), but I had some disappointments in regards of the amount of water because it was really…little? Then I went to my room to read, when I sniffed the smell of weed. It’s not like I dont understand the ways of the world, and I would understand it if I was in Amsterdam, but the source wasn’t even from the outside but from inside of the house and it was reaching my room through the corridor. Now. The room next to mine is the landlady’s daughter’s and downstairs it’s hers. I’m really starting to doubt the quality of this supposed 5 starred Airbnb which has the best room decour but maybe one of the most disappointing experiences on terms of water and…neibourhood?
