Mongolia Rally Diary – London

One day before. London – a wonderful city! I came over for a few days before the official launch of the Mongolia Charity Rally. One of the main reasons was actually to meet up with my Norwegian friends who came over to join us for a big goodbye party before we head out on our three months drive towards Mongolia.

I love just strolling around town doing nothing but enjoy the ambience, look around, do some shopping, have a coffee and walk wherever I feel like. I also love eating exciting food – and when I met up with my CS friend Hisham he took me to a traditional Egyptian restaurant and recommended me to try the «the ultimate, the supreme and most delicious Egyptian vegetarian dish» Kushary, and for dessert we shared the Om Ali. The food was delicious, and if you are looking for a great place to eat when in London – try Meya Meya.

In the afternoon we had a great party in Camden with ten friends coming over from Norway to have a good time before we left – and off course to wave and hug us well away. I remember I used to love Camden when I have been to London before, and it did not disappoint me this time either. I love the mix of people, the markets, the pubs – and most of all the street food! I had some great Mexican food by the cosy part of the channel, but the very best thing this evening was the company of all my friends!

The very last evening I stayed in Bletchley outside London with my team mates and a few friends. After a lovely vegaterian Thali on the local restaurant Rose of India we started the last preparations of the car in the middle of the night – and we managed to finish all of it and also to get some hours of sleep!

What is your favorite spot of London?
