Some things never disappoint

London, England, United Kingdom
Our second day here in London has been excellent.  We started the day at the Borough Market.  The sites and smells of one of these old markets is quite something.  If only I had smell-a-vision!
After a quick tour around the market, we headed off to the meeting point for our Harry Potter walking tour, called the Tour for Muggles.  We all enjoyed it immensely because of the fantastic weather, however, all felt that the distance between stops was a bit far.  The guide had a great (read ‘sarcastic’) sense of humour, though, so was well worth the small fee for the tour.
This evening was the absolute highlight of our trip...again.  We had a repeat of the Gingerliners, Chamber of Flavours.  This time was version 3.  I sooooo wish I could tell you all about it...but in name of abiding by the ‘rules of engagement’, I am sworn to secrecy.  Suffice it to say it was worth every penny.  It was an excellent 5 course meal, served up through incredible interactive theatre, and the laughs were sprinkled throughout.  I even experienced a couple of foods that I’d never tried before...mostly because I didn’t have my glasses and couldn’t read the menu.  Had I KNOWN it was octopus, I’d likely have passed!!
Today’s blog entry would be so much longer if only I was permitted to break my vow of silence.  Alas, I  daren’t risk my Alumni Status with the Chamber by giving away the details.  but I will say this...if you’re ever planning on coming to London, and you know WELL IN ADVANCE when you’re coming, make every effort to get tickets.  It’s not easy, but nothing that good ever is!!
