Woodbury common - an hour out of the city on the bus, an industrial estate-sized designer retail shopping experience with names including Gucci, Calvin Klein and Ralph Lauren. What did I buy? A sweet pair of headphones from Bose. What?! I am not a clothes shopper...when I did look briefly, they didn't have my size :(
Fantastic vista of the city at night on the bus back :)
Met some more of the London gang for dinner in the evening, at a nice little Italian over the road...the meal was slightly (hugely) marred by flooding water coming from the restroom that we were sat next to. Customer service skills were lacking from the restaurant, we had to move ourselves and when all was said and done they weren't offering anything in compensation except maybe the food all over again or some free coffee's?!?! Don Giovanni's on w44th street if you're wondering. Could have been a great event if not for that. The best we got was knocking the bill down to $15 a head...basically halving the bill.
Oh, bonus, I have come down with a stinking cold and all I want to do is curl up in bed...but the sightseeing hasn't even begun yet...wish me luck, cos the city, and it's freezing temperatures, is calling to me ;0p
