Much better day all round: the rain stayed away, I felt more human and there was much more on display. The chilli beef jerky was insane.
One pretty amazing thing that happened after the food fest was when my sisters and I decided to take a stroll along the seafront. Completely out of the blue we bumped into my old friend Nima, whom I hadn’t seen or heard from over the past 5 years. His new band The Arrows Of Love had just played at The Joiners in Southampton and they decided to visit friends in Portsmouth before going back to London. Talk about a blast from the past. What a brilliant twist of fate.
