Tuesday, 25 July, 2017 – weather: great
Actually the weather report is fake news. It is supposed to be a fine day but starts grey and slowly improves throughout the day. That hardly makes it great but by comparison to what we have seen it is superb. We start the day by going out for brekkie at a local pub.
After leaving the garden and returning to the apartment, Julie prances out again and takes some more food shots.
What does the title of this Post mean? Is it rooty, toot, toot we’re the boys in the Boy Scout troop? No, Tooting is actually a suburb in South London and we are going on a tour of Indian foods in Tooting that Julie found on Airbnb. So we take the tube to Tooting Broadway to meet our guide Aidan at 4:00.
We then depart and stop by a couple of fruit shops that have some unusual fruits which are commonly used in Indian cooking.
We walk for quite a while through two markets and a number of shops. We end up at a eating place that opened as a very small shop a while ago and was very popular, grew and has now expanded here.
My problem is that with all the walking I am totally wiped out by the time we got there. Some nice meat dishes and sambals but I wasn’t up to it.
One thing I will say about this place is that it has the cleanest toilets I have seen for a long time in public places.
After boarding the Tooting Bec train we make our way back home. Way too much food today but liquid grapes were required and in demand. A good day, a huge one tomorrow.
