London, United Kingdom
I think we are finally mastering the public transport in London. We navigated our way to Camden today to find ourselves in a market that bordered between the Thailand knock-offs (we bought some Dr Dre Beat headphones that seemed a dime a dozen) and Harajuku style gothic jewellery, punk clothing and street food. I saw far too many things I loved but would not fit in my backpack. I settled instead for a dragon earring. I also found myself a bargain warm jacket for £15 at the train station. It came in handy to swap my puffy down jacket, and seem less of an obvious foreigner. We popped into St Paul’s Cathedral, which was amazingly beautiful. The architecture is breath-taking, and of course you can’t take photos. So naturally we tried to sneak in a couple…. We also went on a trek to Ledenhall Market, where Harry Potter’s Daigon Alley was filmed. A little anticlimactic for me, but Ena was happy. Dinner was leftover rabbit pie from last night, as we rushed off to West End to see a play. We booked tickets to see Quartermaine’s Terms starring none other than Mr Rowan Atkinson. It was a very thought-provoking and witty performance, although I’m not sure it showed Rowan to the best of his abilities. He played a bumbling teacher that was similar to his Mr Bean performances. The other characters were messy and complicated and very entertaining though.
