Tuesday: Brick Lane

After sleeping off my jet lag on Monday night, I awoke on Tuesday with renewed determination to see something of London besides the office and the hotel. My London friend Maurene suggested we go to Brick Lane, also called Banglatown, and eat Indian Food. Before dinner we walked the entire length of Brick Lane checking out restaurants. Just like on Sixth Street in Manhattan, young men stood outside the restaurants trying to entice customers. Over and over, we heard: "Want a nice curry, ladies?" Finally we settled on a place of our own choosing, not being persuaded by any of the restaurant hawkers’ sales pitches. We had a lovely meal, some good Indian beer, and a very nice time.
