My friend Dave's visit

My friend Dave has arrived for a flying visit from Canada. I've known him for 20 years.
Jeeze that's scary.
We've been laughing and talking about old times like the middle aged codgers we are.
There's a "real ale" festival in Cambridge and we took a look.These things are frequented by the "knit your own clothes" crowd as well as the rugby-cricket set. Odd bedfellows.
Unpasteurised beer, curries and kebabs.
A technicolour yawn can't be far off.

Yep we'd overdone it the night before.The "taster's notes" describe "Oblivion" this way: A very dark, strong ale. Spiced fruity aroma with a rich malty fruit flavour. Brewed with Amarllio, Centennial and chinook hops.
I say the 6.7% alcohol content gives it the name.

Yesterday we went to London to see Jess and headed to South Bank.
The usual odd collection of people and street performers were out in full force.
That's it for today.
I'm back in London today and then Paris and Prague later in the week.
Love to all
T
