London: Day 3

Today was scheduled for Craig to play cricket for Alex's team down south over the Thames in Dulwich. So he picked us up at midday and we made our way down. We saw the huge Battersea powerstation that towers over the surrounding neighbourhhood, drove through Clapham (an Aussie ex-pat hangout) and through Brixton (traditionally a Carribean community area) and to Dulwich to a lovely cricket ground.
Craig and Alex opened the batting and did the team proud with an opening partnership of 139 or so; the team finally declaring at 180, Craig - not out for 85. I was very proud and he was exhausted. By the end of the day, they bowled out the opposition and the match was (easily) won.
