To Victoria and Albert? A misadventure of epic proportions

Ah, after starting the day with a good stretch and some spying on my neighbors it was nearly 11 when I got out of the house. Another bus day, another attempt to get to the Dior exhibit at The Victoria and Albert Museum. Of course I wanted to travel by bus, I really enjoy the […]

Honest Burgers

A decent burger within walking distance. The chips were very good. They flavor them with rosemary salt… interesting.
