I quickly found a phone shop & asked about getting a new pay-as-you-go phone. They had some cheap phones I could get for around £25, but that would be about $50 Canadian. I decided to head to the nearby Starbucks & see about adding a travel plan on my phone from home, which I discovered I could do for $5. It was a lot of running around, but it used up some of the extra time I had.
After all that fun I headed to Covent Garden for some shopping! I picked up some souvenirs for everyone & then it was time to meet up with my old workmates from when we lived in London.
As I walked to the pub where we were supposed to meet, I took a few pictures of the street signs
Apparently there were a few people I worked with who do not check their facebook very often, & they had no idea I had named my daughter after the street!
This is one of my favourites!
Fiona & Mora worked on the Reception desk with me, & were always fun to work with.
Ian & Pete
I had not seen these people in over 12 years! It was far too long & we had a great time catching up. We had planned to meet up at 3 in the afternoon on Wednesday, figuring that the pub would be dead & we would have the run of the place. Strangely, there was a power cut, so all the nearby businesses had been let out & everyone had the same great idea to head to the pub! Despite having no power, the pub carried on serving drinks. After a few hours the lights came back on & everyone cheered. At the end of the night you could see that the dishwasher had not been working, as the entire bar was stacked with glasses!
