The next morning, as there were hardly any guests registered, we had the luxury of our breakfast being freshly made to order (apparently not something they normally do, as we found later – all buffet). So fresh porridge was had with cream, Bushmill’s whiskey and honey, followed by some grilled tomatoes on wheat toast. So healthy! . . . with the tomatoes!
Mamore Gap was almost like going on an amusement park ride – this crazy straight road directly up the side of a mountain leading to a gap that looked like a huge chunk bitten out of the Urris Hills before falling away on swerving, dipping bits of road with the most breathtaking views to Dunaff Head – so raw and gutsy and wild.
After this rather moving walk, we went to The City Hotel to get some blogging done and indulge in some wine and Pringles. Not too much, though, cause we were going to India House for dinner – SOOOOO needed a curry! The waiter was a little dubious when we ordered the madras – doubted our curry-credentials, but it was no problem whatsoever! In fact, the spice was much needed and sorely missed over the last few weeks – both of us LOVE the chilli, baby! The onion bhaji and the vegetable pakora were both delicious, too – they were flavoursome and DIDN’T have oil dripping from them from the deep-frying! A very pleasant way to end the day that contained some confronting moments in our history lessons. Go to India House
