We did it again…picniced outside the Wireless Festival. A little Ke$ha on a Saturday afternoon never hurt anyone.
Catching up…..Read about The Queue here.
Tips for Wimbledon:
-Read the size requirements of bags that can be brought into the grounds and how much alcohol you can bring in.
-Go with a group
-Have a picnic while you are there
The day was so much fun and we had amazing weather. The rest of the story can be told through photos.
And thanks to David who gave me his Centre Court ticket for the last set of the Soderling/Hewitt match!
On Thursday we decided to tackle ‘The Queue‘ at Wimbledon. The Queue is for non-ticket holders who want to experience Wimbledon. You aren’t guaranteed entry but the chances of you getting in are pretty high. We got to the queue around 10:00am and were in by 12:30pm.
Tips for the queue:
-Bring a book, magazine, newspaper
-Bring a towel to sit on
-Bring some snacks, drinks, & alcohol
-Bring an umbrella
-Bring cash. They don’t accept credit cards.
-Be patient. It looks like chaos but it is very organized
We didn’t camp out but there were a ton of tents filled with people hoping to get centre court seats.
The queue is a fun experience and once you get into the grounds you realize it wasn’t as bad as you thought.
Next up…Inside Wimbledon!
Being a student with a lot of other Expats has its advantages. Some classmates and I went to an amazing Indian lunch last week at Punjab Restaurant in Covent Garden.
Prachi took control of the ordering (since she is from India) and ordered pretty much the whole menu so we could try everything! We were beyond full and so happy with the choices.
I can’t remember what we ordered but I know there was lots of lamb, chicken, veggies, rice, naan and dessert. Prachi said this is the closest you will get to a homemade Indian meal here in London so I’ll take her word for it. It was delicious and I even got a doggie bag which I’m really excited about. Can’t wait to go back to Punjab Restaurant!!
Fellow American expat, Jen, told me about a place in Canary Wharf where they had self-serve frozen yogurt with a ton of toppings. I didn’t believe her so I had to check it out for myself.
It’s hidden in the underground mall off the beaten path but if you keep looking you can’t miss it (next to Waitrose). Look on the maps so you don’t miss out.
I got pomegranate fro-yo with kiwi, raspberries, strawberries, blackberries and cherries. I wish they had lychee…that would have made it just perfect.
Might head back today for lunch….it’s that good!
I was never able to find a deli that made the perfect mozzarella and roasted pepper with extra vinegar sandwich outside of my hometown. I never even found it in NY….until now. I was walking to the tube after work and noticed a small deli. I walked inside and knew it was going to be the most delicious sandwich ever. This secret spot is called Camisa + Son in Soho. The employees/owners are from Italy and speak English with an Italian accent so you know it’s going to be delicious. For £3 I got a sandwich that lasted me two meals, lunch and dinner. I tried to search for a website but they don’t even have one. You can read write ups about it but that’s about it. Here are some photos as my proof:
Not only do they have delicious sandwich but they sell homemade macaroni sauce and macaroni and many other items.
Who would have thought I’d find this in London but I’m a happy camper!
