Anusha in Kew

My friend's daughter is working this summer in London and came to visit me in Kew. Because Anusha is an avid runner and can walk forever, we covered areas in Kew Gardens I don't normally see, including a Bonsai room and an exhibit of plant uses. In place of some formal gardens were vegetables! While wating for Anusha to finish touring Kew Palace, I met some "abolitionists" who explained that an act had just passed to end slave trading, but unfortunately not the end of the institution of slavery. We had quite a discussion about the Americas!
