Things I love About London

Spent a few days up in London. A slight chill in the air, autumn leaves to kick as I walk, tastefully decorated tube stations, proper boozers, people giving out flowers to celebrate a Muslim festival and a brief glimpse of the new open backed Bus for London based on the old Routemaster.

Cologne Pigs Foot

I was in Cologne this week and visited the excellent Fruh restaurant/brewery just by the Dome. Cavernous, many rooms, wooden tables scrubbed clean and a continuous supply of small glasses of Kölsch. What could be better? I ate a beautiful pigs foot with lots of crackling. Doesn’t sound like a good idea for the English palate but it was delicious.

In the hotel I was able to access the Internet and send emails using my iPhone connected to an Apple wireless keyboard. Mainly, it worked very well though it seemed to keep losing the connection and going dead only to come back again moments later. I shall return it to the Apple shop and see what they say. Note that one still needs a magazine to lean the iPhone on.
