It was v. v. v. good to see my younger brother and his equally fantastic girlfriend. I got really sad their last day which I guess is a good thing all told because it means I like my family. And miss them.
Given that they’re both on the right side of 30, I was worried we would be too old and boring for them. They remedied that by spending the first part of last week in Amsterdam:
They got back to London on Tuesday and braved the sometimes gray skies and difficulty getting ice in your drink at a restaurant and had an action-packed four days of: walking and more walking, bus tour, Dali exhibition, Buckingham Palace, Harrods, National Gallery, Wickedat the Apollo Victoria theatre, St Pauls, Tate Modern, Borough Market, Tower of London, Abbey Road and most important of all- shopping at H&M on Oxford Street. They went to three more museums than I have gone to since moving here so, um, not sure what to do about that. We also made them eat dinners at our holy trifecta of Indian, Korean bbq and Thai. Be warned all future visitors: Bryan and I have now tested every Korean bbq place in London and we have settled on a fave. The fact that you can rent your own karaoke room after you eat is just icing.
I bring you now a mix of our photos. Micah is (in)famous for never making a serious face on film, but I think Janelle and I might have reigned victorious on a few here.
It’s very hard to get Bryan to take a normal belly shot pic with me.
