This is another highly recommended coffee house on my list. It was a cool place because it was not too far from where we stayed just across the Kensington Park. This place popping and it was located on a semi closed pedestrian way on Exhibition Road. The place was totally cute, but really busy. I ordered a jamon iberico bocadillo and a sparkling water. Simple but a really good sandwich on really great bread. I finished the meal off with a filter coffee that was good but a little cold. I got to sit outside to people watch which made my lunch even more entertaining.

The overall theme for this trip has been my eternal search for cookies. I am trying to find something to top Mark & Spencer Cookies, but I am having a hard time doing so. I saw these guys and thought. Hey, if they have their own store front they can't be bad. Plus there is a line out the door for them. They had a lot of really interesting flavor like coconut and dark chocolate chunk. So they had me.

The cookies were good, but not great. It certainly didn't stop me from eating three of the four cookies I bought.

It's taken a little more than a week, but I finally have made it to Kensington Palace. For some reason, I always thought that it was not possible to visit this palace because it was a residence for many of the royal family members. However the Palace is huge, and the part that visitors are allowed to visit is almost completely detached from the actual residences.

The palace does not look very special. When you go inside you do see a couple rooms, but nothing spectacular. The most interesting things I found in the palace was the art piece in the foyer and the exhibitions.

I did not know where I wanted to eat before the Theatre, but I knew I wanted it close buy. Chris, Ana, and I wandered east on Albert Embankment and came across this Pizza Express. I had only eaten at Pizza Express once before, but I don't remember too much about it.

It turns out this place is pretty good! I loved it because they had a lower calorie menu where they put a whole in the middle of the pizza and put salad on top. I think the crust is thinner too. I liked it. It was a perfect meal to have right before the theatre.

One of the new things I experience in this trip was to be a groundling at the Globe's performance of "As you like it." I have to admit that I do not particularly like Shakespeare because I have a hard time understanding it. However I forget that reading Shakespeare is far more difficult than watching it. I fully admit that I could not follow all of the story but I got it for the most part. The acting was really good and the characters and story were funny. It was hard on the feet too, but the play made it bearable. It didn't hurt that the actor who played Orlando was hot and shirtless for a short time. All the girls enjoyed that. In fact there were audible sad sigh when he put his clothes back on.
