(Too bad Niki’s name didn’t start with an “f’.) 😉
On Friday, I waited at Waterstone’s in Notting Hill to meet Niki. I took a cab, and when double checking with Niki on where to meet her, I’d accidentally said, “Nottingham.” She laughed and said if I ended up in Nottingham, she couldn’t help me. I was so paranoid that I triple-checked with the poor cabbie to make sure I had said “Notting HILL” and that he’d understood me. The cabbies here in London are all so polite and so helpful. When he couldn’t find the original store I was supposed to meet Niki in front of, he seemed reluctant to drop me off. I assured him that I would text her to give her my new location.
We stopped for a fabulous lunch here:
After we were shopped out, Niki and I stopped for drinks at The Providores and Tapa Room on Marylebone High Street. She introduced me to these amazing tapas:
When Bob finished up with his conference, he met us here. It was Friday night past 6 PM and we were sitting outside enjoying our drinks! Why did we choose to sit outdoors? This place requested that any four-legged companions dine outdoors. Good thing it was a warm enough evening. Here we are posing with Tank. He’s just so adorable!
More about our trip, soon!
