I revisited Big Ben, the House of Parliament, West Minster Abbey, and the Globe to see A Midsummer Night’s Dream. But I did have two new experiences. The first was the Cereal Killer Café on Brick Lane. They have cereal cocktails, stacked hot chocolates, and cereal milkshakes. The restaurant is painted in nostalgia with cool cereal boxes, cereal art, and two TVs in the basement playing dated TV shows. It took awhile scanning the menu to decide because I wanted to try everything. I ended up ordering a Poptart milkshake (as shown above). It was pure sugar and definitely worth every calorie.
The second new experience happened when I was crossing the street to get to the Tube station. Other people in my group had seen all kinds of famous actors and actresses running around London, but I hadn’t been so lucky until that day. I was waiting for the light to change so I could walk, when I looked up and saw Andrew Scott, the actor who plays Moriarty in BBC’s Sherlock. He made eye contact and continued swerving between cars to avoid being seen. That was my one and only celebrity run-in in London. Actually, it’s my only celebrity run-in ever.
