Camden Town [Nov. 25th, 2005|09:20 pm]

In between Kristin Hersh shows, we wandered around and took a lot of pictures. This first picture is the Camden Town Station, and the second is St. Christopher's youth hostel on Camden High Street, where we spent two nights. The hostel was a happy place that only cost £16/night.

All the rest of the pictures were taken on Camden High Street, a good place to buy combat boots and get skewered. There were several great markets (awesome clothes and shoes!), a canal, and lots of cozy restaurants - we dined at a chain called Henry J. Bean's, and it was delicious. Mostly we just strolled in the sun, basking in our good fortune.

























Don't we look happy? It's cuz we were having a blast!

I don't wanna calm down... I don't wanna come down.

If I was suffering from morning-after, I must have been coming down from an exhilarating concert. Those blankets are quite thin - more like bedspreads or tapestries - and I didn't notice the price, but I bet you can get them in the U.S. Don and I had several back in my college days, usually hanging over windows. Oohh, and I'm absolutely sure you would like living in this part of London. =)

Hey, thanks for that site!! I've been shopping around for Mary Janes for a couple of months now (actually, I never saw so many Mary Janes as in Camden Town), which is why I paid attention to Kristin's shoes. They look comfortable; they also look great!

Thanks for the huge compliment, by the way. :-D

Last night, Don and I were discussing whether my hair was a joke and should be cut, or whether I should keep trying to grow it long. (Don took the "keep growing it" stance.) Then we got home and read your post, and he got all smug. ;-) That's actually what we were discussing when he took that picture, too.

But thanks a million!! :-)

(And I wanna go back... Don keeps saying the same thing...)

Thank you! I think you'll find yourself in the UK before you know it.

I was amazed to see your hotel photos, by the way. I guess SQ puts their crew up in MUCH nicer places than EK!
