The Sights Tour Diary Entry No. 40: Stoned

This morning began with a stop at a lasting memory of my first U.K. tour, the restaurant known as Little Thief. Actually, it’s called Little Chef, but back in ’03 it was dubbed ‘the thief’ because of its high prices. Well it seems the thief has cleaned up its act, and the club sandwich wasn’t […]
