What was supposedly a trip to the annual Bristol Balloon Fiesta 2010 has turned into 'food fiesta'. This is due to the ever unpredictably predictable wet British weather.
The day started with the sun shining above us. As we were driving along the M4 towards Bristol, it started to drizzle and by the time we reached Water Sky restaurant in Bristol it POURED down with rain!
Since it was raining heavily we decided to head back to a friend's place and wait the rain out. Sun came out sooner than we thought so we head out to Aston Court - venue for the balloon fiesta.

So we all decided to head to another eating place - HKD, for FOOD!
