More touristy stuff today! Took the train out to Camden for breakfast. Found this cool bar/restaurant called Q, and had a really awesome cooked breakfast. Their brunch menu was interesting, a lot of alcoholic things were suggested, so I had to try a bourbon and malteaser milkshake. It was really strong but really nice. We had a wander around the Camden markets. There was a street food market ...
... I also worked out how to take multiple shots on my camera so I ended up with heaps of photos. This became problematic when my iPad was unable to read my memory card until I clear photos off it. That cost £1 to use the hotel computer where I transferred photos between memory cards. I spotted a guy who looked like he was an All Black (not sure who, but if he is, I've seen five in three days, it's almost a thing) while I was walking around. I think the All Blacks may have ...

I woke up at 4:25 on the morning of Friday, the 3rd, and didn't sleep again until the 4th. The day and then some that I spent getting to London was the longest freaking day of my life. Three flights and a 10+ hour layover in Boston (an awful, filthy airport). Not at all a fan. But I guess that's what you get for $600.
That's all behind me now! I met up with ...
