I had found seemingly vague directions on the net and luckily, it was fairly easy and we managed to find it right away without having to ask for further directions and getting lost. The "spot" was suprisingly empty, save for a couple of tourists doing the usual walk across for the birdy. I had no intentions of doing the same, and as I usually travel with a tabo (a plastic dipper native to the Philippines), the way Amelie travels with a gnome, I had originally just wanted to lay him on the road and take a photo.
So off I go accompanying Tabo across the road. Given how much traffic passes through that street, it was heartening to see how much respect motorists have for the tourists wanting to get a souvenir shot of the place. They were ever so patient and not one honked their horns at us. M got her turn, too, and we were shortly on our way back. Walking up Grove End Road, the street that leads to Abbey Road, we noticed another one of those blue heritage home plaques. The house turned out the previous one of Thomas Beecham, musical conductor and founder of both the London Philharmonic and Royal Philharmonic Orchestras. Well, surprise, surprise!
Since there was no show for us to watch, we spent the rest of the day back in Camden for our last minute shopping, and finally packed up for our to return to Manila the next day.
