breakfast at the hotel can be a tad boring
let me take you to Le Pain Quotidien!
The name of this restaurant means "The Daily Bread".
It's set out informally and has gorgeous scrubbed pine tables.
My favourite table is the very long one in the middle
with plenty of room to stretch out and even chat with other people.
they have free wifi and I was able to write a few emails
and look up theatres and concerts to go to in the city.
I love the atmosphere
and it's a great meeting place.
This one is in High Holborn and near where I like to stay in London.
It was still empty at this early hour
and a few people were waiting for the door to open
to enjoy breakfast.
Here is a brief story of the bakery and restaurant
and its founder.
The next stop is Covent Garden
There's always something happening here
including free concerts.
Lots of lovely boutiques to browse too.
You can stand at the railings or go downstairs
and sit at a table with something to drink.
First there was an opera singer performing.
My favourite was a string quartet
playing classical music pieces.
Don't you love the little boy?
He was playing his own violin made out of two small pieces of wood.
and he imitated every movement of the musicians.
A basket was passed round and we were able to show
our appreciation and even buy a CD.
It was time to visit a park.
Here is a fountain at Regent's Park
and some lovely pink blossom on a flowering chestnut tree.
Another lovely day in London.
There are so many things to do that I can never do them all
that's just the best excuse in the world to go back there again!
