Sunshine and retail therapy
After a week of dreary grey weather, Saturday — finally — was gorgeous. Since I was weary of house-hunting, and since all of my sunglasses have long since been stolen and/or misplaced, I decided to go sunglass shopping near Covent Garden. I may have come home with more than one pair…
The Covent Garden market is nestled amid a bustling shopping district just being the Royal Opera house and not far from all the West End theatre.
Remember Eliza Doolittle in My Fair Lady? Well, this is where she was selling her violets and got “discovered” by Professor Higgins.
I may be in London, but that doesn’t mean I can’t go to Le Pain Quotidien for a Belgian take on a Vietnamese sandwich for lunch!
