Continued from London Day 4 Part 2.
Last night after eating our delicious late dinner, RL mentioned that her tummy wasn’t feeling the greatest. We just both assumed that it’s due to both of us eating whatever and drinking more than usual. Soon after we fell asleep, RL ran to the bathroom and proceeded to expel the contents of her stomach into the toilet. This happened repeatedly throughout the night maybe 6-7 times. Poor RL had gotten food poisoning eating fancy food here in London while avoided any stomach issues eating street food all throughout our previous Southeast Asia travels.
We couldn’t figure out how she got sick as we ate and shared everything all throughout the day. The only thing that we could think of is maybe she ate an oyster that’s gone bad…Either way, by this morning she’s feeling terrible so today will be a stay in and recover day for her.
In other news, our hotel has decent walls. But despite the decent walls, we could still hear our neighbor next door during their late night activity…I wonder if they also heard RL puke her guts out all night last night…
Time to get blogging. Despite this being a fancy hotel in london, our internet has been kind of lacking. The speed isn’t very fast and the wifi randomly disconnects. I’ve had better wifi in much worse hotels. Our phones have been slow too, but that may be because we are on travel data plan.
She found this Chinese restaurant really close by on her phone and I came down here to order food. I walked in and they immediately spoke Mandarin to me, ok sure that works I guess. They were a little rude like most mainland Chinese, but was told food would be ready in about 10min. I guess I’ll walk around the corner and get a drink at a pub.
We lazed around in our room most of the afternoon then by late afternoon RL felt well enough to try to go out for dinner.
Got back to the hotel and I worked on signing up for getting covid tested in preparation for our flight back to Austin in a couple of days. This is what the ethnicity drop down menu looks like…How do I just pick, “Asian”? I ended up picking Other.
It’s Friday night and the streets below our hotel is bumpin’ with noise of people out partying. In Austin, this would keep ramping up until 2:30am. I bet it’ll shut down here by around midnight here in London, nice. We must be getting old.
