|Tropicana brightening up Trafalger Square|
Today myself and the BF had the day off to spend together which we (I?) decided would be best spent taking in what our capital city has to offer.
It was one of my new years resolutions to make more of London, and I believe I am starting to fulfill it. Earlier on in the week I made sure to check out Tropicana's art installation in Trafalgar Square; a bright artificial sun which is meant to be visible from space.

Today we went to Borough Market, a food market close to London Bridge. I always mentioned going whenever we passed by on the train, yet had never got round to it. We tasted some foods that were on offer, lots of cheese and bread etc and tucked into German Bratwurst sausages in buns, followed by slabs of fresh cheesecake and coffee for dessert.

We had a couple of drinks in a few pubs to round the day off which came to a total cost of;
Travel: free for me (season ticket), discounted travel card for BF £5.40
Drinks: £8.40 first round, £6.40 second round (joint account)
Food: £8.00 hotdogs
£5.00 x2 huge slabs of cheesecake (should have shared)
£5.00 x2 coffees
Total: 38.20 - under £20 each which I'm fairly happy with as it doesn't happen too often.
On Sunday we also plan to go uptown to celebrate Chinese new year in Soho to welcome the year of the dragon.
Future trips I want us to do in the next few months include; going to see the 'Woman in black' film starring Daniel Radcliffe- perhaps for Valentines Day as it's released around then. Also to visit Boxhill in Surrey when the weather is a little warmer, and finally to go to Dagenham market to check out the fake designer goods my sister raves about.
