British [sweetie] pies

Meet Sam and Jo, our first and only friends in the UK so far. These guys are great. Just fantastic! Friends of Alisa, Swilly & Damon of the SB, California crew. It was evident after a few drinks, dinner, lots of chatting and laughing, (AND getting lost while walking us home) that these two were the kinds of insiders one would hope to have in a new city. They have patiently answered all our questions and now we know where to buy a bed, that rocket is arugula, puddings are desserts, aubergine is eggplant, and most importantly, that no one (except Americans) has called it the “Chunnel”—ever. They had a good laugh at us for saying that, and then corrected us, “Eurostar.”
