Garrett and Vikram arrive in London

Garrett and Vikram arrived at around noon. I met them at Heathrow Airport.

We got off the train at Green Park and walked north, trying to find somewhere to eat. We ended up eating at The Burlington Arms where Vikram had his first beer on tap ever:

image

Garrett and I had fish and chips, Vikram had something inferior (you have to have fish and chips as soon as possible when you arrive in London!). This pub tried to be fancy, but wasn’t especially good. I would have prefered less fancy fish and chips.

We went to get the keys to our Airbnb. After some coffee with the host, we left our bags and returned to the city. We wandered around for some time.

Next we went to go look at an interesting looking building.

What's that over there?

It turned out to be a courthouse.

Oh, its a courthouse

We saw an interestingly small building amidst larger, newer buildings.

We saw a humungous building amidst normal, average buildings.

For dinner we went to Cittie of Yorke, which was an excellent pub with lots of seating and beer. We drank Old Brewery Bitter. Thanks for the pub recommendation Uncle Richard!

After dinner we went to a small store to get some things. I purchased some Fruit Pastilles!

Garrett enjoyed looking at the eggs.

Garrett doesn't understand why the eggs aren't refridgerated

We missed a train back home, but only had to wait one minute for the next. Take notes, BART.
