On Saturday we went to Portabello Market. I definately liked Portabello Market more than Camden Market. Camden had better food, but Portabello had better shopping. There were a ton of people selling antiques ranging from pocketwatches to teacups. There ... Read more >

So, last night we got tickets to STOMP! And it was pretty entertaining. It is as entertaining as it could be when they are making music out of brooms, trashcans and matchboxes. Unfortunately, I was not able to take any pictures of the performace. ... Read more >

Nonstop Action!

Saturday, 16 Jun 2007 | Views [370]

So this is my 3rd full day and London and we have been going nonstop! After the ten hour flight, which wasn't too bad...minus the fact that it was extremely cramped, we hopped on the underground and made our way to the stop closest to our flat. We ... Read more >
