London day 3

2013-12-03 12.31.34 Last day in London couldn’t skip a visit to Camden Town and its market area and ‘locks’.

‘Camden’ was and still is very popoular among youngsters, students and alternative people.

The markets sell tons of t-shirts and clothes of any kind. It is also a night-life busy spot.

Is possible to have a reasonable cheap lunch in one of the many international cuisine stands.

As my tour was going to end in the night I had to buy a national express bus ticket @ Victoria station

Last stop was at Earl’s Court, where, in 1997, I spent a wonderful vacation with two good friends.

You can compare the pictures… 🙂

London Calling (day one)

2013-12-01 14.39.07 This is where I spent all my 3 days in London, waiting to be useful, eventually I left, without any success… 🙂

This is the story of day one in London, a wonderful city that I visited last time 6 years ago, while the first was in 1997, during one of the best travel I’ve ever done, with a really tight budget, squatting, having fun at jamaican carnival and much more…

Day one: after catching a national express bus from Stansted to Marble arch, I’ve met my lovely host, Cristina, an italian girl working in London. She introduced me to her friends and we went to a beautiful alternative area of the city, in the indian neighboorhood, with flea market, international food stands, street art and small city brewery ‘brewdog’.
