London Update

So my mom and sister came to London earlier this month and I had a nice time off and becuase it is taking so long for my photos to upload I am breaking this up into a few posts. First one - In London.

LondonSo they got in in the morning and I forced them to stay awake and since it was a thursday we took the bus and went to borough market on the left bank and then walked up the embankment all the way to the London Eye, Big Ben and Parliment.  It ended up being a really nice sunset so we got some good pictures.

Then it ended up that it was Megan's birthday so we took many trains to get up north london to have a few pints with Megan. Then of course to make their day even longer, while there should have been a bus home, it was taking forever so we just ended up walking. I sort of killed them, but I think it was good since they got a good night's sleep including the fact that they both take sleeping pills and start seeing double and falling asleep before actually getting into bed. It was pretty funny. 

The next day we went to my new favourite breakfast place and then decided to do the east / west tour of markets. First we went to Spitalfields market which on Friday's is a designer market with local designers clothing, bags and jewelry. I haven't been to this before (since it is on fridays when I have to work) and it was great! I bought a jacket and a great ring, earings and a necklace. My mom bought a bracelet, a purse and other things, seriously I was having too much fun at this market. I must go back. This market is on the east side by Brick Lane.

Then we went to the west end to portobello road and while friday is not the main day, it still had a lot of stalls, This market is mostly antiques and some weird things, it is fun to look at. 

We were supposed to leave on Friday morning to go to Italy, but all flights on Easy Jet into Pisa were cancelled so I couldn't get a flight until saturday morning. But in the end this worked out well since we had a good day of markets in London. 

This weekend - Cinque Terre Update.
