Settling Into the BoroughThe driver picked us up at Heathrow and dropped us off right at our apartment steps...one of the traditional white row houses in South Kensington.
We're in a 2-bedroom, 2-bath apartment with hardwood floors and a bay window. LOVE. It has a fully equipped kitchen and adjacent sitting room, with streamlined, contemporary furniture.
The first thing Mr Cool noticed was the fancy cars...Bentleys, Rolls Royces, Mercedes Benz, BMWs, Porsches, Mini Coopers, and Maseratis line the streets. Welcome to the one of poshest neighborhoods in London! I'm not entirely sure how we managed to land here. But I'm not complaining.
Actually, I seem to have this kind of amazing luck every time I come to London. The first time I came (after Cambridge) I stayed at a private girls' school called Queen Alexandra's House, right next door to the Royal Albert Hall!
