When we got here yesterday, we stopped at a little café near the train station and then to find our B&B. We finally found it and just like the name states, it is at the top of the biggest hill in Rye, but not too bad, only about a 10 minute walk from town. May I just state though, that Brian decided to be in charge of making a map for us to find the B&B, and wouldn't you know that the first time I hand anything to do with directions over to brian during this trip, he ends up getting us lost...just had to put that out there.
We headed back into town after we were settled in and explored a little bit. We found an old fashioned candy store that Lydia would have been in LOVE with. It was soo cute. It was just a tiny shop with all the walls lined with shelves of candy and a nice old English man working there. It was perfect that we just had to go back this morning. We had to stand in a line out the door to wait to get our candy weighed.
I finally got my Indian dinner from Christmas last night too!!! The owner of the restaurant that we went to was really friendly and really interested that we were from the U.S. and that it was the first time we had had Indian food(for some reason the people of this country are obsessed with it...I can't quite figure out why, but I'm not complaining) We even had the pleasure of dining to the sounds of Hanson, which I think was because we were American, but quite funny. We didn't have any idea what we were ordering, but Brian and I both got a huge rice dishes that were delicious.
Today was kind of a lazy day. We were up for our breakfast at 8:30. And then headed into town again for some more exploring. The town is just fun to walk around. All the houses are named and there are cobble stone streets and old churches and inns and tea rooms. It's adorable. All the shop owners are friendly too which is a nice change from the hustle and bustle of London. It was sunny out today finally, but windy too. We came back and napped and then picked up some Chinese takeaway for dinner.
Tomorrow it's back to London, back to riding the tube, and back to work for me. I'm hoping the weather
Stays nice so Brian doesn't get too bored while I'm working.
Peace, love, and candy shops from the medieval town of Rye.
