Many of you know that I recently spent some time in London. I was there for a race, representing the USA at the Age Group World Championships of Triathlon. This was an overwhelming and humbling experience. The whole Iaciofano clan showed up, as well as a hearty cheering squad from my old stomping ground in Los Angeles.
Scotch eggs and fried capers at the Pheonix Pub in Covent Garden.
Copious amounts of “Flat Whites” (this one from a bike cafe called Look Mum, No Hands!)
A post-race celebration at the Dock Kitchen.
Wacky bus rides.
Underwhelming tube rides.
Black Pudding! (from Albion Cafe) John and I both liked it.
The best bathroom this side of anywhere (Nopi in SoHo).
The best food market this side of anywhere (Borough Market).
Copious amounts of clotted cream (from Brown’s Hotel).
With equal amounts of gin. And rum. And heavens only knows what else (from Purl).
A proper British haircut for John.
A lot of shopping with Kaz.
Brunch featuring toast caddies! (At High Road House, Chiswick)
Waffles on sticks! (Tower of London)
And a ridiculous, Team USA photoshoot around London…
