With Autumn just a few days away, warm, sunny days are going to get rarer so I asked C to take us down to Princeton for a long, lazy lunch.
Ever since I saw the movie “A Beautiful Mind” based on the brilliant but disturbed mathematician John Nash, I’ve wanted to visit Princeton. This Ivy League college is quite close to where I am right now and it would be a shame not to visit it.

After a scenic drive through farmland and forest, we came to Princeton and walked down Nassau Street to Despana – a restaurant and Tapas Cafe.
We decided to enjoy the outdoors too and soon settled down to some . There were several diners on the pavement , enjoying the pleasant weather so we decided to enjoy the outdoors too!
We had a simple meal, starting out with the Gambas al ajillo ( sautéed prawns) and then the Ensalada de la Huerta ( a green salad with red Sherry vinaigrette dressing ). Our main course was the Chorizo sandwich. (Despana is famous for its spicy, sausage)
We rounded this off with my all time favourite a smooth as velvet Caramel custard with dollops of fresh cream and slivers of strawberry.
After lunch we had a quick round of the famous University before returning home after a day well spent.
Now wasn’t that a lovely way to spend a warm September day?
