Thinking about her and her Roti truck with her spectacular Roti and perhaps best, her lovely chat.
Practically every day, Aly, Shantal and I would venture out of the house, walk through the Brixton markets for about one minute to what began to feel like our stable place on this tour…
– Her bright blue truck with a boldly painted Guyanese woman on the front, and a well tattooed and pierced Guyanese woman inside with her Roti pans chick peas, spinach and bony meats (we always opted for the vegetarian roti).
2 pounds 50 for us because we were so sweet, filling her with compliments and questions.
Who doesn’t like a little flattery when it comes to their spectacular one of a kind cooking?
So many shows, perhaps 10 including last-minute gigs. Open mics galore, one where 2 rap star wannabees shot out some ridiculous (not in a good way) licks with a back track as accompaniment.
Somehow such clever lyrics as “I’m VIP, I like to move it, Rock the party right, I”ma beat you like ho.” doesn’t get the deserved applause when following a bunch of oversensitive, poetic and gentle singer songwriters.
London was special…my darling Shantal and Fernando hosted us for nearly 2 weeks. Meagan, her sister loaned us her wardrobe unwillingly. Oh how I wish I had a sister with good taste.
Once you watch this video you will get the London vibe..
