I now believe there is no safe plan in the world we live in
Liz and I decided to escape to London for a relaxing mind clearing weekend. ( yea right )
Apparently the British have decided to emulate their French neighbours by way of a very tourist unfriendly rail strike. All of my preplanned underground voyages were eliminated with the closing of the jubilee and Elizabeth lines. That was after our Stansted express to Liverpool Station ended up being a journey by bus.
We did however make the best of our Saturday with a boat cruise on the Thames and dinner at Louie London where we reminisced about New Orleans with executive chef Slade Rushing formerly of Brennans on Royal Street. We even got treated to a new creative version of southern pecan pie and bananas foster. (He could see I needed the calories)… I guess it could have been worse and I should be grateful that we can get to a Place like the center of London in less than 4 hours . All in all great little getaway !
