On Sunday we decided to visit our first London street market. We chose Camden Town Market which is a HUGE clothing, food, and craft market. Not in the nicest of areas but a wonderful site to see. It was definitely bustling! There were so many different stalls selling all sorts of jewlery and little crafty things, as well as a bunch of junk that you see at every flea market type place. But the food! Oh gosh! They had African and Carribean cuisine, crepes, waffles, fudge, cookies, vegan foods, smoothies... on and on. I really had to hold back from sampling everything and ended up trying nothing, but it all smelled so GOOD! I have to go back!!
Afterward we decided to head to Oxford Circus and do a bit of browsing.
We planned on heading to ISH to to see a free movie there but it starred Jude Law (I'd just watched "Sky Captain and the World of Tomorrow" the other night due to a complete lack of anything else and also a sheer need to see how much more crappy it could continue to get. Needless to say, it totally turned me off against anything to do with him) so we opted out. Instead we walked through Hyde Park, had an ice cream bar filled with chocolate, visited some monuments, and called it a day. It was a lovely evening and a great way to spend a warm, sunny Sunday.
