Back in Hammersmith

On the way home from the Brompton Cemetery we decided to try one of our neighborhood restaurants, Ottoman, "Authentic Turkish Cuisine." The atmosphere was nice and the food was great. Robin says the cacik (pronounced jajeek) was the best she's ever had. And she's tried more cacik than anyone I know. Other than Jay, our Turkish exchange student from Istanbul. On second thought, I think maybe he preferred green chile enchiladas.

From Ottoman's it's just a short bus ride to Starbucks where we had a latte before taking the five-minute walk home. Actually, even though I wanted to take the bus to Starbucks, Robin insisted that we walk, since you can see Starbucks (green awning) in this photo. But the bus looks fun.

Another view of the neighborhood and Starbucks.

For those of you who are fans of Lillie Langtry, we're also close to The Lillie Langtry pub. I'll give you a report on that place as soon as possible. I'll ask if they've ever heard of Judge Roy Bean.

Today our mission is to climb The Monument, the tall tower that marks the spot where The Great Fire of London started. Details soon.
