We crammed in as much as we could and did pretty much everything on our list. We were so intent on eating all of our favourite foods that we took a bus all across town at midnight just so we could eat Indian food. Crazy as that is, it was well worth it for - we ordered our food spicy, so we were sweating a little through our meal, but it was good preparation for our India trip in October!
We really enjoyed our time in London, especially because we got to meet up with some friends we had made on our travels in Africa. We had a mini reunion at a pub with a couple of people (Emmie & Bailey) from our overland safari trip, and we also visited a couple we had met on our desert excursion in Morocco (Kemal & Veronique). Unfortunately, Ed and I became a little cynical in Morocco because of some of the negative experiences we had, but we met so many fantastic people who really restored our faith in mankind. Kemal and Veronique invited us into their home for a home-cooked meal and we all had a jolly good time! Kemal is originally from Turkey (our next destination) and we got a few tips and a quick language lesson so we would know what to expect. How awesome are they?!
We're now off to Istanbul, where we'll be starting our journey down to Cairo. While we'll miss the little luxuries, we're looking forward to the warm weather, beaches, and putting some of our haggling skills to work in the markets.
