Jubilee Weekend in London
We decided to escape the beautiful countryside of Somerset to brave the jubilant crowds of East London this weekend. But it seems that most London made a dash for the coast to celebrate the long holiday. And it's great! There are hardly any crowds on the tube. I didn't have to elbow my way around shops on Oxford Street. There are no long queues for the toilet in any pub. If London had been this pleasantly empty when I lived here for four years, I might not have left!
The collage above represents the highlights from the weekend. From left to right, top to bottom: jellied eels at Broadway Market; a jubilee window display; the queen on a long boat; cider at The Dove; fennel at Taste of Kerala in Stoke Newington; trendy bikes on a Regent's Canal; Mr. T puzzle c/o our friends at Saturday brunch; The Cat and Mutton; Shoreditch on the tow path. I hope you had a great weekend! xo
