Sidenote: they had a display of about 200 different varieties of apple. There is apparently a 'Ben Davis' apple. Moving on.
One of my friends from high school is visiting this weekend. Amanda was studying abroad in France, so she hopped a train and came over. She accompanied us today as we scoped out an ELizabethan Harvest Market. Costumed revelers processed from the Globe Theatre to the Borough Market, including a Corn Queen, a Green Man, and other folk in period garb. The market itself was definitely on the more rustic side. THey had mulled mead and mulled beer, as well as french cheese makers from Brittany, all sorts of home-made tarts, pies, breads, etc. We ate well today.
Tonight, we are going to a Ceile dance at the London Irish Center. Apparently, it is fairly similar to our american contra dance, which I have enjoyed for a number of years. We have convinced a number of our classmates to come with us, so this should be fun.
Coming up next week: The Allblacks vs. England, Guy Fawkes day, Ben coming to visit. Also, the week after that is Remembrance day. Hopefully, we can get good seats to see the Royal Family and the parade.
