At 5:30pm Lydia and Jenny [friends from home] walked into the pub fresh off the plane from New Zealand. They haven’t changed a bit in the 18 months since we last saw them and it was wonderful to see someone from home.
We sat down and had a drink in the bar then went up to our room where we spent an hour and a half talking and looking at our African photos. After another drink downstairs we caught a bus over to Oxford Circus and continued our reminiscences at Break for the Border over beer and Mexican food.
Time flew by and before we knew it it was 10:30 and time to go. We all caught the Bakerloo Line and they got off at Piccadilly Circus to go to Gloucester Road and we carried on back to Lambeth.
