Meeting My Loyal London Readers – Kim and Kay

by brian on January 11, 2009

First up is Kim who has been reading the blog since I took off. In fact she liked it so much that she posted about me on her blog. She’s the owner of Bruised Reed, which I have a link to at the top of my blog.

When I got to London she invited me to a get together with her friends at a Brazilian spot called Guanabara near Covent Garden, London’s entertainment district.

My cousin Angela and I had to leave early, but not before we had a great time talking and laughing with our group of new friends. We got this nice group shot. All fantastic folks!

Met Kim earlier this week for lunch. She has had her own round the world adventure, so we had alot to talk about.

You know when lunch is really good? When good conversation is had… and someone else pay for it. Thanks Kim!

Next is Kay, a fellow Ivy grad and recent export to London from the East Coast. We met at a Mexican place called Wahaca, also near Covent Garden in London.

I asked people when I was in Tokyo for any requests. Kay requested a Japanese fan from Kyoto. I was NOT going to Kyoto for a fan, but did manage to get her a few things from Thailand and Hong Kong.

 Meeting My Loyal London Readers   Kim and KayKay and I have already decided we are going to write a book together. And if you’re in London toward the end of the month stayed tuned to this blog for info on a potential get-together. Not confirmed, but we are working on it.

Good times and great laughs with Kay.

So what did we learn today:

That if I come through your town, we will meet and you will be on this blog. A very good thing.
That if you ask for me for something, you just might get it. A very good thing.
That I have met some of the most interesting and funny people on this trip. The best thing.

Hey Brian! Thanks for posting about our lunch :) Great meeting you and thanks again for the great fan-hat and fans. Though I must confess that the first thing I thought when I saw that picture was “I look like my mother.” Thanks for scaring me to death! Look forward to planning the London get-together…k
