The best way to know a city is to visit it alone and figure out your way around and what you like or don’t like. I decided this when I went to Paris. It held true for London. My last full day of my three years in England was spent alone in this grand city. But even without anyone to explore with, I ended up packing in a lot of adventure into my precious few hours.
Siân and I got up bright and early with the goal of going shopping in London’s one and only Camden Market. We were there for hours.
You know, in the past couple of posts I said there’d be something to look forward to this weekend, but it has occurred to me that it was something more for me to look forward to than for you. You guys just get to read about it.
I managed to fit in some last minute souvenir shopping before we caught our train back to London. We took our heavy suitcases on the Metro, and at the station (Gare du Nord, same way we came) we got some snacks and I bought lipstick that made me look like an assassin (according to Sarah). Then, we went through security.
