I ventured down into Marylebone Lane today for lunch at CaffÃ© Caldesi, a Tuscan redoubt I have passed many times.Â I sat surrounded by wealthy folk discussing tracker loan rates and sub-prime fallout while the waitstaff chit-chatted in French an Italian and James Brown music played on the hi-fi.Â What an odd juxtaposition.
Had some wonderful salmon with parsnip purÃ©e and tapenade. Â Yum.
Then a long bus ride to Waterloo on the upper deck, enjoying the sights.Â The clouds gradually taking over the sky from the sun.Â I strolled the Queen’s Walk to the base of the Eye and took some snaps.
Then back home to do some laundry and pack for Prague.Â I must stay in tonight and be a good boy, my flight is early tomorrow.
