little bit of american life in london
Well we got an early start this morning, we woke up at 8 AM and had breakfast and headed over to Camden Town. Today, we met up with Dena’s friend Kat. They went to PVA together so we were pretty excited to hear some American! We tried to meet up with Robert Ellis today too who is in town playing in London. But we keep missing him. Guess we’ll have to just wait ’til we’re back in the states.
Ta-da! Camden Town stop! Cool story about the shirt I’m wearing, there is a lady on Dena’s street who just gives away all her belongings every few years. Dena picked that shirt up for me. Oh no biggie, it’s just Celine shirt so yep pretty cool. Kat came and met us at the station and showed us around Camden! She lives near the canal and is design school here in London. She’s lived in a million places which is pretty cool!
After Regent’s Park we walked across the city to the giant Paperchase store at Tottenham Court. It was full of stationary, journals, drawing things, books, magazines, and satchels that I really wanted but were far too expensive. After that, we needed to head home to meet back up with my family so we parted ways. On our way home, we had a small change of plans so we needed to kill some time. Dena still wanted to pick up a souvenir or two so we swung by Camden real quick to get a few things.
This photo pretty much sums up Camden Town. Some really skanky people mixed in with a lot of tourists. Lot’s of weird hole-in-the-wall basements with flashing lights and techno music. Lots of stalls with quirky things to buy including a mood ring that Dena got me because I have always always wanted one. It was really fun to hang out with Kat and she was super nice. She showed us around the city and we enjoyed hanging out with her.
