After a long flight and a reasonably short trip through Immigration, we headed to our apartment in North Acton – our home for the next two months.

After unpacking and settling in, we wandered around the neighbourhood to get our bearings and to fight off the imminent tiredness from the long flight.

Coffee and a late brunch in the local cafe  proved too much for John’s desire for good coffee. I’m sure he despaired at this stage of ever getting a decent cup of coffee. The experience has unfortunately put us off the local cafe but luckily for John we found lots of very good coffee in London.

A trip to the local pub, The Castle, later in the day proves a bit more positive. The pub has a lot of character and offers live jazz every second Sunday. Somewhere we will be visiting again soon.

All in all a good day and a good start for our wanderings.
