Hampstead Heath and dog freedom

Finally a near-normal night, rising at 6h06 on the dot, our feathered friends chirp early under the English sun.

Breakfast: 1 raw bar + 1 orange

2h walk in Hampstead Heath, with Selina's children, I discover a splendid view of London unravelling at our feet. The weather is radiant, the sky is blue, the sun is shining, .. and the best is that dogs are allowed to run free, without a lead, they run, play and even swim in the ponds, no chance of this being allowed in the USA where a Nestle off the lead costs a hefty $100 fine.

Lunch : 6 wholegrain rice and black sesame crackers + 2 slices gluten and yeast free bread 
+ hummus + babaganush + 2 small vegan fruit cookies.

I escape to town by myself on the number 6 bus Kensal Rise --> Marble Arch and stride along Oxford Street, Regent Street... I explore the mecca of affordable fashion, the famous and very "British": Top Shop

3 hours walk at good pace

Snack at Pret-a-Manger, the chain of "fresh and healthy" delis that are all over the UK and are slowly arriving in the USA : 1 fruit salad+ 1 banana

Diner: 2 bowls tomato soup + 2 slices yeast and gluten free bread + 4 wholegrain rice crackers with black sesame seeds + hummus + 1/2 avocado + 1 orange

We finish the day with a great French comedy classic: Les Bronzes font du ski (unfortunately gets completely lost in translation in English)
