Day 13 - Last night in London

We didn’t do much at all today as Craig and Emily were leaving for Japan at 3pm.  We were to change rooms, as we had a two bedroom place and were changing to a one bedroom for tonight for Kylie and myself to stay in.  Luck had it they said we could stay in the same room, so that was easier.  We walked down to the local souvenir shop to get Emily’s last minute bits and bobs, then went back to our rooms and chilled out till Craig and Emily had to leave.  I was then on my own, I just caught up on organising my photos then had a nana-nap.  Kylie arrived at 5ish.

We went for a walk later on to find a nice place to eat.  Most of the pubs were full, we thought Spanish would be nice and eventually found a Spanish place called Cafe Brindisa in South Kensington.  It was yummy, we had lots of little plates of different foods. For you foodies, namely Aimee, we had Kikones (toasted corn), Habas Fritas (toasted broad beans), Vegetarian Bomba (roasted aubergine, pepper and onion croqueta), Pulpo a la Gallega (Galician style octopus with potatoes and pimenton), Patatas Brava o Alioli (fried potatoes with spicy tomato sauce), Chicken Breast (stuffed with goat’s cheese, almonds and golden raisins) and Payoyo Cheese (semi cured goat’s cheese with grapes).  It was so yummy, it sounds a lot of food but they were all very small sized portions.  We had a nice stroll back to the hotel, it was cold, but not raining!
