Sunday Column (1)

Hello Readers, After a long weekend, or should I say I am still in it as I am off work tomorrow, I decided to write a Sunday Column.

It happens quite a lot that you actually sit in the tube and someone comes up to you, seeing the white asparagus through the clear poly bag, and says “Hallo, na, auch wegen dem weissen Spargel auf dem London Borough Market gewesen.” – Yes, typically German (translates into “you have been to London Borough Market for the white asparagus too”).
