Things I miss

Aren’t necessarily what I was expecting to miss.

In no particular order…

1. Spicy food – I have finally realised you can have too much cheese, and bread and pastry too, for that matter. As for beans and rice…

2. Pubs of Highgate – needs no explanation, except perhaps to say that the ‘choppe’, or tiny glasses of beer served here with oodles of head, are no match for a decent pint

3. Cheap books – even in Portuguese, books are still seen as a luxury. None are cheap and there are certainly no one pound classics

4. Not a lot else besides friends and family. Even Sundays are alright here, although they didn’t have to be that great to beat Sundays in London, a day which can turn anyone into Morrissey even in the summer.
