Just a few final snaps in Norwich. I finished out the day in the city centre exploring and shopping. I made a few purchases in the cathedral gift shop and then browsed a few stores - clothing stores, a toy store, book store, outdoor equipment stores...I bought Kazi a couple of things at Topshop but they are tucked away until Christmas. I really really really want to come back to Norwich again someday. There is a walk in the area that I'm considering...among many others :)
I miss you BBC!! I'm watching (again) all of the old Morse episodes on Netflix while riding my bike!
Although Norwich is a cathedral town there are many other imposing churches...
I found a little fish and chip shop- they put your choice of spices on your fries from a long list - best I had during my stay!
Oh, and I forgot the previous evening I ate at a Pizzahut and they were playing Shania Twain music - a rather surreal experience!
The open market place drew folks from all walks of life - I wish cities in Canada kept their city centres intact like Norwich - such a vibrant downtown experience.
I cut through a catholic church to get to another part of the market...
I wasn't the only one...
a quiet oasis in the middle of the hubbub!
...the ancient and the new(ish) joined together...
While checking the time of my bus back to Mulbarton I discovered an unusual bench!
My personal oasis! Right across the street from the bus stop - had a coffee, yogurt and berries and made use of their free wifi and washroom - just what i needed!
Waiting for the #37 one last time!
...for Brick Kiln Lane...
The terminal was full of great shops - I purchased a little Paddington Bear for Kazi at Harrods.
And ta da! I'm in Iceland! I listened to my iPod the entire flight as the young couple sitting next to me used the word "f-ck" continuously as a noun, verb and adjective!! Here I am enjoying a meal of a lettuce, tomato and egg sandwich, yogurt and cereal and a Viking beer! I made a few purchases at the Duty Free - Icelandic wool socks, a little green elfin creature, lots of chocolate. I ended up tossing the running shoes in my backpack into the garbage (the blister inducing ones) so that I'd have room for my few purchases.
I'll bring you up to date on my goings on since my return to "real life" in my next couple of posts.
