Various Brighton Things (and squirrels)

After arriving back from France, we didn’t get up to much.  I was mostly just waiting around till our next travels, as I was going to New Zealand and the end of April, so not a lot of point looking for a job yet.  We also wanted one of us to have a job ideally before getting a flat, so we weren’t really looking for that yet either.   We had Sunday Lunch at some delishuz places, usually equipped with some great vegetarian option (like nut roast, and mushroom roly poly), roast veges, gravy, and Yorkshire puddings.

Lots of buildings around that are old and fancy stone, or ones that are all the same, a whole row of houses up the street, all like the others.

The next weekend was cruisey, Henri and I went op shopping – lots of cool 2nd hand stores in Brighton and Hove.  They are all quite small, but I think they have a high turnover of stock, and they seem to keep a lot of nice stock in.  Some of the also seem to get donations (?) from department stores/bigger stores, so occasionally they have new stuff tags still on.

We wandered around town, and the Pavillion, where we met the local squirrels.  Wandered the streets a bit, met a few showers (its a bit like a tap is turned on).

Moved to a friends house to stay for a while, whom had a spare room, and we were very appreciative of the opportunity to have our own space.   One of the nights, we made Saag paneer from scratch, including the paneer, and it came out a lovely shade of virulent green.  Way greener than any curry you get at a takeaways, and I think it is cause the spinach is so fresh.

Went bouldering with Alastair in Portslade, which was very fun.  It is wall climbing, but without ropes, so you need to be a bit careful, rely on your skills and strength.  It is not as high as a usual climbing wall, only 3-4 metres high.
