While we were in England, we got the train from Bournemouth to visit London. London was an important part of my life as soon as I was old enough to be allowed to travel there without adult supervision. Some people are naturally country folk, some people are city people; even though I grew up in small villages and quaint towns, that was never where I really wanted to be. I was curious to see how London had changed since I last saw it, nearly 10 years ago.

Tastes better, though

When spilt down your leg, tarka dal makes it look like you’ve been nursing a baby with explosive diarrhea. This can be embarrassing when walking through the food court.
