  York Shambles
by Goner

We ambled through the "Shambles" looking for a tearoom for dinner, well tearooms are not open for dinner. So we started searching for food.

The City of York is a hip little place. Londoners come here to party for the weekend. The streets were crowed with people looking for food just like we were. Finally, we ended up eating "Cajun" food in the well-preserved medieval city of York, England. We were entertained by a bartender who thought he was Tom Cruise from the movie "Cocktail". He tossed the bottles behind his back and over his head with ease. He told us he was practicing for the country's best bartender contest.

We found our way out of the "Shambles" back to Ambleside. We had partied a little too.
