England London Camden

27 June 2010

Grand Prix Flying, England Failing

I went and got a boring lunch and got home just in time for the Formula 1. Mark Webber decided to see how far he could jump his car onto its roof, quite far as it turns out.
Then England decided to reverse the result of World War 2. For this occasion I decided to wander the streets to see what was going on in the pubs. Lots of yelling and screaming for the first 30 minutes or so....then silence. I was dissapointed there was no riot.

I really did walk a lot today and my feet are already suffering as a result, I think my shoes are no good, too narrow at the toe end for my fat feet.

The evening walk took me back to chinatown, where I saw a disgraceful display in a restaurant, read on for the description with the pictures.

I quickly walked to Camden looking for lunch, its quite near my hotel, there were lots of people out and about, some already drunk, but I didnt find anything for lunch that wasnt deep fried.

There were announcements and signs alerting everyone to Englands huge failure. After seeing the goal they were denied I cant believe there wasnt more violence in the streets.

Heres my dinner from a Singaporean curry house (in China town). It was pretty great, and cost about $10, quite spicy, good roti.
When I got there a group of 6 people from India were attempting to order. They all spoke good english but despite this, I listened in as they took 20 minutes to order 3 things off the menu. They were deliberately trying to confuse the chinese waitress. I dont know what their motivation for doing this was but it was starting to make me mad.
To the credit of the chinese girl, she kept explaining things patiently, when she must have known they were being idiots. Some questions they asked were 'Is there any pork in the steamed rice?', 'does the chicken come with prawns?', 'do you serve the curry on a plate or straight out the tin?'.
The one woman at the table seemed very annoyed at the 5 men.
When their drinks came, the behaviour continued, they sent the coke back for being too cold, and they sent orange juice back for not being sweet enough.

Next thing, a man comes out from behind the door, and says very calmly, 'I have been observing you from the kitchen (dramatic pause), get out of my restaurant.

Now this caused quite a drama, with the group accusing him of being rude and demanding an apology, by now I am trying to get my camera, the woman started crying and stormed out, and the 5 men followed her before I could take a photo.
