Rest, Laundry, and Poirot

Yesterday we rested after the big night watching FC Barcelona take apart Manchester United. It wasn’t much of a contest, but a pleasure to watch an unbelievably good soccer team.

Jean needed to do some laundry, so late in the afternoon we walked to the nearest launderette. 6.5 GBP for a load of wash! 50 P per 8 minutes to dry! One load cost over $10. The locals who came in while we were there crammed the washers overfull and took wet clothes home to dry in the air. We understood why.

In the evening we had the privilege of watching two Poirot episodes that have not been picked up by PBS in the US yet. I won’t give away the plot and what has happened to Poirot in the interim. The shows were up to the usual terrific standards.

Today is our last day in London. We are going to visit Westminster Abbey and then pack. We leave early tomorrow morning for Dublin. Not sure what sort of internet connectivity we will find in Ireland. Stay tuned.

 

About Paul

I'm retired, but working at painting, photography, and song writing. We like to travel and paint plein air in new places. Of course that's also where photography comes into the picture, so to speak. Sometimes I get inspired to write songs about the people and places we visit.
