Tasha and Brixton!November 11 in the United Kingdom
Today Emilie and I went to Brixton to check out their markets. They were amazing. So many different cultures in one place. Plus Brixton struck me as a pretty cool neighborhood.
We ate at honest burger which was honestly one of the best burgers I've ever eaten. I had the "Brixton Burger" which had a tough of jerk (jamaican) spices, as well as a generous piece of pineapple running through the bottom. It was delicious and then some!
Afterwards we went to this thing called "Department Store" which was not really a department store at all. It was four stories, but on top was a beautiful restaurant/lounge which was neat. Then we went exploring in areas that we were apparently not supposed to be, as the elevator didnt let us leave the way we came and we had to take a detour outside. We had a good laugh and got out as soon as we could.
We went back to the flat for a couple hours to rest/speak with our families. I even had a nap and caught a few minutes of the premier league game with one of the flatmates in the Airbnb.
By 9pm we met Tasha and Neil in Victoria for some pizza and drinks. The place was quite cheap so we enjoyed three drinks each along with a whole pizza. It was about 1130 when we left and went to the next bar which was a quick stop for just one drink before it closed. Here I got to know Tasha a little bit better one on one. Then we cabbed down to Archer Street and went to 100, this fancy cool basement club. We got settled and continued our evening. Tasha was quite the dancer so we got along quite well, but I always made my way back to Emilie :)
We closed down 100 by about 3am. We attempted to take a few tube stops to get home, but we frequently came to closed gates. We eventually found one that took us close ish to home and then walked 20 minutes from there. It was just after 5am by the time Emilie and I stumbled back into our bed. I remember brushing my teeth and then I was OUT.
We slept until 2pm today. No hangover. WIN!
We eventually made our way down Brick Lane on a whim, which was an amazing decision. We found this really cool farmers market/collection of street foods. We had sugar cane juice, chicken quesadillas, Argentine empanadas, chicken skewers, and
alfajores with dolce de lece for dessert. It was all delicious!
There was some really cool art and these candles that Emilie really fancied. Unfortunately I didnt think we would have any room for candles in our carry on small bags. But I ended up sneaking back to the shop and grabbing a few anyways. I figured we would make it work, and Emilie was very happily surprised when we got home :)
Later for dinner we had some Chinese and then we just packed and watched a movie before getting ready for bed. Tomorrow the next leg of our adventures starts, Spain here we come!!!!
