We have been made to feel very welcome here by uncle Rodney, Auntie Patsy and Darryl, relatives of close family friends
We hit the town last night with Darryl to a local pub which was great, although apparently that was nothing compared to the city so we will be checking out next week. They really do love to party here!!
Over the last few days we have been around the local area checking out shops and a few sights. We took a drive down to Southall, a little town that is entirely Indian. That's right, it was like stepping out in Calcutta. Saris hanging from shop fronts, Punjabis walking around, and Indian foods stalls surrounding us. We've visited the local IKEA, which is quite popular here, as well as a gigantic wholesale store called Costco. This place has absolutely everything, including massive gourmet baked potatoes for £1.25. Amazing!!!! Finally, on our way home we traveled past the coveted Wembly Stadium. Yes, it still is incomplete, but it is quite a sight to see. It is amazing, and it towers over T.D. Although, it does bear some similar features, not surprising, seeing as it is being built by the same company that built T.D. Tomorrow we head into the big smoke. We can't wait to finally get into London and see what its all about!!
