Weekend with Julie and the gang

Posted by Rave

Friday night, Julie lands at heathrow airport terminal. Harry n I go to pick her up. Harry stayed awake past his bedtime, chatting and drinking pretty good Italian wine ;) We made plans for the next day and went off to bed.
Satuday, we head off to leicester square to meet Julie's friend Helen from her course. Walked and talked, lunch at chiquitos and then down to embankment for a cup of coffee., stopping at Trafalgar square on the way. Met becky on the way there, been almost a year that I had seen her.

Regular chit chat planning for our graduation on the 10th June. We waited near the London eye for Sujay and Alex to join us, but they were late, so we sat outside the embankment station observing people.
Enter Sujay and alex, loads of laughs, stories and gossip get thrown around, while we sip coffee starbucks waiting for Alex's collegue joana or 'just Jo'. She's polish speaks several languages and a bit hyper.
The pub- two bottle of wine chosen by Julie, is gulped down by the five of us in no time, making sure we look into everyones eyes while we say cheers. Loads more of laughs, alex is drunk and Sujay is happy, the girls are doing well so far.
China town- we head off to china town for dinner while alex talks to random people on the street and goes in random restraunts to use their restroom :P
The food is good, sufficient, and suprisingly cheap. One more rose wine later, the boys are even more tippsy, while the girls still holding strong and in control.
Club/bar- back to leicester square into a nice club/bar. Great music, ambiance and company. One more bottle of wine, and this time both the boys and girls are happy, turning the space around our seats into a dance floor. I have pictures to show, but they have been censorsed for the health and safety of public interest.

Time to head home and Sujay still wants to drink, but we call it a night and go to our respected abodes. Worked on my new wordpress blog at night, it's looking cool.

Sunday- woke up late, had samosas for breakfast and plan to meet alex and Sujay at Liverpool station.
Spent the morning helping Harry fix his stereo in the classic, we are geniuses ;)
Met Alex and Sujay at hounslow, next stop Liverpool station. Starving, and craving bagels that julie had been telling us about for 2 days. Walked from one end of Brick lane to the other to try the famous bagels at 159 brick lane. They were ok and I was cheated 5 pounds extra, realised it too late. The lane was bubbling with people and shops, food and street performers. It's like Camden town only better and bigger. Ate some other stuff, I tried Cuban chicken sandwich while Sujay had masala tea, Julie had japenese and Alex had coke (he works for coke!).

Then we entered the coolest place to hang out- Truman brewery, it is just amazing, great music, lots of places to eat, drink and sit. We got ourseleves some nutella crepe and very comfortable sofas.

Explored the other markets int he area - Sunday up Market and Spiterfield Market. Interesting but we were already tired.
Sujay had to leave for Euston before 6 to catch a train up north, so we said our byes and headed home.

Planned indian dinner (lamb chops) with Harry, Julie, Alex and me.
Unfortunatly Julie had to leave, but we went on with the dinner at Punjabi Karahi... Yummy!

Tired after a long fun filled weekend. Now off to bed. Goodnight ;)
