I am going to attempt to write something every day of my Euro road trip.
Day one - England (two hours outside of London):
1) They like it cold here. In a newly-refinished pub/lounge called the VOODOO LOUNGE in a town called Leamington Spa . . . nice atmosphere and all. . . my lamb pie was delicious. . .but they insist on leaving the doors wide open even though it's like 40 degrees outside. People sit around sipping martinis in their jackets no problem.
2) Re: What is a Leamington Spa? It's a town an hour out of Birmingham that's maybe as close as you can get to like a 'sexy suburb' around here. Like a not quite as cool Royal Oak or a Burbank or something.
3) In the locals only pub, I understood the French theatre manager on tour from Paris better than the local fellas ordering up what looks like a mix of Hypnotic and Smirnoff Ice in a bottle. Will find out what that is tomorrow.
4) Jet Lag means a lot of time to play Phoenix Wright: Ace Attorney. It's OK.
