... and we're awake! Ok checking self. In bed, alone, oh clock's running way slow like it's mechanical rather than quartz.
Must lay off the late night caffeine in future.

Oh good grief!

That was my morning as I realised I was going to do a dry run of the trip to/from the Embassy today. Right before the F1 race too. Here's some of the fun things I've learned on this trip which will aid you on your trip to the Embassy.


Vauxhall tube station: Take Exit no.4. That'll exit you in the right direction to the embassy. When you get to the crossing, don't follow the road straight on! That way lies illegal cigarette hustlers on the street and other things I don't want to know about. Instead follow the road to the right hand side. That will keep you going in the right direction. You'll quickly spot the Waitrose as the Embassy as you walk and shouldn't take you more than 10 minutes.


Waitrose on a Sunday morning was shut. They are open weekdays which is good.


A new cafe that I've not encountered before called "District" is open and within sight of the Embassy South Pavilion. It's also full of Embassy employees having brunch so I kept my mouth shut apart from to converse with the almost entirely Australian staff (plus one New Zealander). This is where I made the discovery that this cafe will do bag storage. Apparently the Embassy is redirecting people there now if they turn up with big bags, laptops etc.


They advise getting there early, like pre 9am as space fills up quick. It's £10 for the day, and there's a free drink thrown in for good measure. I stopped there for a quick pain au chocolat and a tea, and the tea defeated me! Small cups but big pots. I know where I'm having breakfast Tuesday before I go for round two.
