Canterbury & Cappucinos

Today was….interesting. Went to Canterbury, what a neat little town that was. I really liked reading the Canterbury Tales, so it is really amazing to be in the place for which they were named. The Canterbury Cathedral is straight from a medieval gothic picture book – or it would be, but it is real. Strangely (and sadly?) enough, right next to this centuries-old masterpiece of a building, there is a Starbucks. And strangely (sadly) enough, I walked in and ordered a latte. The best part is that there are different coffee creations than what are in the states – sure they have your caramel macchiattos as well. After Canterbury, we rode a bus to Dover to catch a ferry across the English Channel to Calais, France. From the ferry port, the White Cliffs were a pretty big letdown. I bet they are a lot more majestic a bit further down the coast.

Paris has a lot of fuschia toilet paper. I’m not kidding. I have seen it in three places now. Speaking of toilets…so far, Europe has more weird devices to flush the toilet. You can push a button on the wall, you can pull a string. There are some interesting combinations of both. I exchanged my pounds into Euros and I can definitely say that this language barrier thing is going to be interesting. Had “flam” for dinner, which is a really flat crepe-pizza with ham and cheese and onions. It was really good.
