    Thali Tea

    December 8, 2015 in the United Kingdom ⋅ 🌧 6 °C

    I suppose British think walking down the street to the cafe for some evening tea is no big deal. Make a right here, turn left there and tada! Oh but wait, we are Americans and a nice walk for us is WAY shorter than the directions we have been given from both sets of hosts. The first time was in the village of West Horsley...yeah, we turned back around after a half - hour walking and was no where near the pub we were directed to for dinner. We were starving, it was pitch black, run our of sidewalk and street lights and went back without our supper that night. This evening in Bristol, after arriving 2 hrs later than expected due to the awful/scary/narrow lanes in rush hour traffic, we were once again directed a right here, left there and again no tada! It was a LONG way, like 2 miles through back alleys and over walking bridges, before we reached our destination for tea.
    Yet tea we did enjoy!
    Great local place :)
