It's ridiculous how great the weather was today. Every summer day in London must be fully enjoyed, as rain is never too far away. After a lecture at LCF in John Prince's Street, my friend Pong and I decided to have some sushi in Notting Hill. We were going to a restaurant that turns out is doing renovations so we just grabbed something at Itsu instead. Rather than sit inside and spoil the lovely day outside, we took our food and walked to Holland Park. I had never been there, but it's my friend's favourite park and she was really excited to give me the grand tour.
Soon after we entered we found a nice spot of grass to sit in the sun and eat. I don't usually rave much about Itsu, as I'm not the biggest fan of these 'fast food sushi' places, but today it tasted delicious and left me incredibly full. I had the Super Salmon 3 Ways and my friend had the Best of Itsu box. After we laid in the sun for what seemed like hours, but was actually a lot less, we walked around and she showed me the park. I loved the Kyoto Garden, where they have a waterfall and where the peacocks live. The most beautiful one was hiding behind a crisscross fence and we could barely see it, let alone photograph, but we still liked seeing one of the other ones expand his tail. In the garden is hot and fresh at the same time, and oh so green. After, not wanting to go straight home, we stopped by Starbucks where I got a Cool Lime refresher and she got a Caramel Cream Frappuccino. It was all I needed to end a great afternoon.
