Finding a New Local: Day Two

To celebrate with Eleanor, we decided to make day two of our mission the Duke of Wellington, which is rather upmarket for a 'local.' You'd think, except our whisky macs (scotch and ginger wine) were only $9, which is great for two types of liquor in one!

The place was packed with old gentlemen who looked like they work as lawyers and like to discuss stock rates and prostitutes over their boutique British beers. We were literally the only women on the ground floor - there were a couple of ladies hidden away upstairs. It all felt awfully middle eastern.

Then we posed with paintings of victorious battles and toasted the Queen.

Also, I love chandeliers.
