Day 9: We went to Covent Garden and went into a number of shops there.
After going to the musical, Les Miserables, we had dinner at a Belgian
restaurant in an old warehouse.
This is Belgo Centraal, in an old warehouse near Covent Garden and the theatre
area. It is busy and loud, but has good food-we went twice. We
both had a half kilo of mussels with pommes frites and Belgian beer
the first time. They have a special between 5 and 6:30-the amount you
pay depends on the time. We got there at 5:40 and paid 5.40 pounds
each! Of course the second beer and the dessert, the best sundae with
their homemade chocolate ice cream, cream, chocolate shavings and chocolate
sauce made it more expensive, but still very reasonable. The second
time we went for a late lunch and we had about the same, except that Elizabeth
had salmon instead of mussels.
