Ivan and I checked out of the Marriott Hotel on May 16, 2010.
We had lunch at La Tasca.
We got a variety of tapas: chicken skewers, salmon, large potato bravas and a salad with apples and manchego cheese. The food was great as usual. Lil Dave enjoyed two plates of fried bananas.
I wasn’t feeling so good. I think it’s allergies and a cold as well. We took the train to Stratford. We would be staying at Neal’s (Ivan’s brother) flat while he’s away in Cuba. It was raining outside. Stratford is a bit of a rough neighborhood. I guess it could be worse. It could be Jakarta, where it’s smelly and dirty.
It rained all day. We wished it would stop, but it didn’t let up. We chilled in Neal’s nice flat and used the internet.
Ivan thought we should catch a movie. Neal told him recently that Four Lions was funny. Lil Dave wanted to see Space Chimps 2, but it’s not out yet. He decided to stay and watch Space Chimps on the computer.
Ivan and I walked to the theatre. We had about 30 minutes before the movie started. The restaurants around the theatre weren’t very exciting.
The Chinese buffet we ate at was pretty bland. It was expensive as well at £11.95 per person.
We watched the British movie Four Lions. It’s about four suicide bombers. It was very funny. Best movie we’ve seen this year. If you get a chance, go see it!
