This is the fifth part of my last trip to London (I’m posting a week’s worth of pics at a time) spanning September 26th to October 2nd. In terms of reuniting with old friends, meeting new ones and visiting family, this week was my busiest.

we were both attracted to the window of this little Japanese restaurant called kirazu. funny enough, we ended up sitting at the window, facing the walkers-by, luring them in with our scrumptious feast
