It's Time For A Spot Of Tea...And To Dry Off

Since the three of us were completely hung over, we figured it was a good day to check out London's huge Harrod's store.

By the time we finally left the hotel, the rain stopped and the sun came out, and we decided to walk and stop by Buckingham Palace first since it was on the way.

Where's the queen??  Oh wait, we're right here.
But once we were done and on our way to Harrod's a thing happened.


The skies opened up and started to cry on us.

Then it was time to check the map, in the rain.

Almost there buddies...only a couple more blocks!
And ofcourse because we had no umbrellas with us, by the time we got there, we were soaked.

Here's the thing...
As soon as we walked in, I was quite overwhelmed. This isn’t like walking into Macy’s. It’s room after room after room, with no end in sight.

Because we were starving (like always) we found our way to the HUGE food area. I seriously felt like I died and went to heaven. This place was amazing. There were a ton of different sections each specializing in different foods.

We found this café and decided to have afternoon tea there. It was veryfancy.

It came with scones, sandwiches which included smoked salmon and cream cheese, ham and cheese, cheese, cream cheese (I think it was cream cheese) and cucumber and others.  And fancy desserts.

Veryfancy at tea.
The tea was delicious….and it’s a law here you must drink your tea with your pinky extended. If not, you get in trouble.

We’re very fancy...or something.


  1. gayest. tea party. ever.

  2. Also, I think I need start referring to Adam as the Dowager Countess of Harrod's.

  3. I hate to tell you guys, but sticking out your pinky finger is considered exceptionally vulgar and a sign of ill-breeding.. no I'm not kidding. My mother would slap you all for it! and again I'm not kidding. Its just about the WORST thing you can do, etiquette wise. It's what you'd expect from a low bred common arriviste.. worse than putting elbows on the table or licking your knife.. (though licking the plate is admittedly worse)
