The First Visitor

My mom just left after a week’s long stay in London. She’s the first visitor I’ve had since I moved here, and we did all kinds of awesome stuff like…

The First Visitor


explore old, almost-empty streets…

The First Visitor


…and creepily look into (still old) private gardens

The First Visitor


have tea once, twice, three, four, times a day

The First Visitor


visit markets (including Borough Market, which is maybe my favorite place to go in London)

The First Visitor


look at flowers

The First Visitor


eat chocolate from Liberty

The First Visitor


visit Tower Bridge (note the very fitting clouds)

The First Visitor


spend a morning at Highclere Castle aka DOWNTON ABBEY (!)—hi cousin Matthew!

The First Visitor


have more tea (this time during a rainstorm)

The First Visitor


explore (Little) Venice before eating at the always-yummy Pizza East

The First Visitor


and see the world.

Come on back now, momsers!
