Bates in London/Portabello
Just a few notes about London. I found this fabulous pearl/jewelry store on Portabello road a year ago when I visited. I am sure happy that I did not know it was there where I lived in London. That would have been really costly.
Here is my good friend Najaf who was born in Afganistan but now he travels with a British passport. He has many tales to tell and happens to be the owner of the store.
Just look at the pearl rings Louise. You will have a hard time choosing.

This is a really small picture because our room in London was really small. The bed mattress went on the floor for me to sleep on and Greg slept on the daybed. Double beds are 130 by 150 cm in Europe. That is too small.
I just sat on a stool and used pearls to make necklaces with the most fabulous baroque pearls one can find. I was in heaven.
