Around Cambridge in a sunny day: cabriolet cars

Yesterday route was great, of course heavy traffic, speed cameras everywhere, etc, but it was sunny!!!


All the people, even the BBC was truly excited about the second day in a row with sun. Honestly I prefer rain, because I have plenty of sun in my home city, but it was nice to walk over the green grass with a wonderful sun and with termometers around 30 degrees.

With such a sunny day one needs a cabriolet car to feel the fresh air. So I decided to check what Porsche and Aston Martin could offer me.

Sadly my father said soon we will return home and there we don’t have room for a new car. 😦

our route, 230 miles, 5:20 hours driving time
average speed around 35 mph.

Filed under: Cooking, Friends, hotels, Tometaro

Tometaro is used to a very different kind of breakfast. Although in his hotel (Park Hotel Tokyo) you can enjoy continental and English breakfast in the lobby restaurant,  he prefers a more traditional Japanese breakfast including miso soup, rice and some fish.


But he is in England now and there is no choice, so let me introduce some of the ingredients of today’s Tometaro breakfast (he will become bigger than big Tometaro if he eats so much).

  • – British pork sausage
  • – fried egg over fried white bread
  • – baked beans
  • – fried potato flakes
  • – baked tomatoes
  • – bacon
  • – mushrooms
  • – scrambled eggs
  • – orange juice



not shown: terrible coffe and regular tea.

Enjoy!!



Rosie: The Belgian Hare

After lunch we went to Rosie’s place. Rosie is a beautiful red haired hare that is living north of London for two years now.


Hares are faster than rabbits and its body is more athletic. Sure they don’t think the same but they are dumber than the average rabbit. So if you don’t have brain, at least you can trust your legs.


Just kidding, but as I am becoming older, the jokes about my round face are pulling my leg harder.


We got to know some of her friends like Norman, a fifteen days old cow that was born in a very complicated birth (his mother died). Norman needs to be feeded four times a day.



The Wool Pack Pub

 Acqua di Panna for Tometaro and a nice Ale for me.
 Onion Rings in a British Pub
A nice veal steak, very rare for FB

Today we went close to Stoke Mandeville to meet my friend Rosie. She is a red haired Belgian hare who moved from the continent.

Hares are different from bunnies and apart from how they look like, they love to live alone.

Anyways the road from our place to her place was closed so we got lost in a maze of secondary roads and when we were tired and hungry we decided to stop in a nice pub called The Wool Pack.

It was Tometaro first time in a pub and we enjoyed a sunny (not kidding) morning in a small British village.


We drove 6:45 hours to London 2012

Today we decided to move from Cambridge to Central London without paying for the Congestion Tax.

Tricky, we planned our trip carefully, but a 3 hours journey turned into a 6:45 due to heavy rain, heavy traffic and other bizarre things like the “Olympic lane” the Brits have in London’s major roads.

The level of “nonsense” is so high that they recommend you to stay at home instead of going to work. Great, soon in Spain no one will have a job, so we have a lot to learn from the Britons.

Public transportation in UK is expensive, slow and unreliable, thanks to those who decided that private sector will do it better, no investments, bribery and search for profits have shaped the worst transportation scheme ever.

And don’t ask me about the British Summer…

Again and again: The Olympics

Again Tometaro and me have traveled to United Kingdom for fifteen days of unless excitement. 

When we took our British Airways flight from Barcelona, plenty of gentlemen and ladies who attended music festivals in Spain, we soon realized why Britons are several steps beyond the continental people.

Anyways we are again in this “beatiful” place where sun shines and food is excellent!
