europe trip day 13: house prices

We had 2 appointments today, with 2 different agents. Saw about 8-10 places around St John’s Wood and Maida Vale. One at Primrose Hill. The conclusion — everything too expensive, nothing outstanding. Saw some good decoration, so old and not so good, brand new conversions and the usual big mansion blocks. It’s exciting to wish.

Late lunch of pasta at Caffe Uno. Then we had to scram cos of parking.

Went to Chiswick High Street. Too windy to do much walking but again, juse being together. Finally managed to find Abbey National to update my book, had tea at Burger King (more than half the price of Starbuck’s, it’s just tea).

Dinner at Chutney Mary’s. It truly deserved its title of best Indian restaurant in the UK. Beautifully decorated, very good food. We shared a starter plate of bbq variety — meat, liver, kidney etc, then we had a vegetarian platter and osso bucco. Both were drool worthy. But wait for dessert — chocolate fondant with orange lassi, pour the lassi over the pudding, bite into the sponge and feel the chocolate inside invade your mouth. That was one dessert I want to learn how to make.

A truly memorable evening. I wasn’t mad anymore (well, I hadn’t been mad since last night :)).
