england diary: full english breakfast (v)
i spent the past weekend in the cotswolds visiting the quaintest and most charming english villages including cranfield, thame, stokenchurch and stratford-upon-avon in the counties of oxfordshire and warwckshire. this part of england is unbelievably gorgeous. fields of green with sheep grazing stretch on for miles on end. picture book like cottages made from limestone are characteristic here. and it's really easy to strike up conversation with the english villagers who are eager to give you tips of places to see and things to do in the neighbouring villages.
one of the best parts about holidaying in the english countryside is breakfast. we took our time to enjoy a full english breakfast every morning which included fried eggs, baked beans, grilled tomatos, sauteed mushrooms and bacon or sausage if you eat meat. though the meal is quite greasy and full of carbs and fat, you've got to do like the englishmen do when in the country. after indulging in full english breakfasts for several days, it's going to be very hard to go back to cereal and cold milk!
