While strolling along the Bund in the morning, I saw a store with a Magnum sign across the front. Like I was going to pass that by. So as on Day 4 I had a breakfast appetizer of French fries, on Day 5 I had a breakfast appetizer of an ice cream bar. Not just any ice cream bar, of course. A Magnum. All they had were ones with nuts, but I didn’t even care. I was getting my Magnum bar. (If you didn’t already know that I go mad for Magnum bars, now you do.)
Later in the morning, I did have something a little more breakfast appropriate. I went to a coffee shop called Costa Coffee. I had seen a lot of them around town. I found out later it’s the Starbucks of Britain. I figured they were probably a large international (non-Chinese) chain, but I bent my rules a little by going in. Really, I wanted to use their WiFi. I got a blueberry muffin and a Victoria plum lemonade. A drink flavored with a fruit named after Queen Victoria. Yes, it was British alright.
