Tour de London - Day 2
The Old Ones will be arriving today adding a much not-needed dimension of laziness to the state of affairs. I could feel the laziness preceding them in the morning, unable to get out of my bed at 11 am.
Somehow I managed to get out and head out to Greenwich to see my sister. She wanted to show me her lair, and the neighbourhood around it. Greenwich is one part of London I highly recommend everyone to come and see. Its a tiny village with a huge park, and the observatory obviously. Lots of tiny bars and cafes, cobble stone streets, a lot of history as the center of British Naval power for centuries. I am no travel writer, but it has a very different vibe to the rest of the city.
We walked up to Point Hill for a different view of the city than Greenwich.
Lunch waa at Buenos Aires Cafe, a tiny slice of Argentina in Greenwich.
We had some time to swing by my sister's lair (apartment).
And then off to see the arrival of the Old Ones.
For the second day in a row, I got to view the underbelly of commuting in London. We had to traverse through almost 25 stops to Heathrow, in rush hour, standing squished in a train. I could sense the madness rising, almost as if the Old Ones of the Cthulhu mythos were arriving.
Finally, made it to the airport in one. Reunion with the old ones! Time to get them some rest and food, and ready for tomorrow!
