Great news-Linda Sue has arrived in London! She got here on Thursday so I thought Saturday was quite long enough to have to wait to see her. My friend Devi and I had already planned a trip to Portobello market for Saturday, so we all met up and that is where we spent the day. We met in Earl's Court near where Linda Sue is staying and walked to the market. There is so much to see there that we spent the whole day meandering down, stopping for lunch, snacks and dinner. We had a lovely day!
Love the gold on blue.
I like the circus style lettering on Alice's.
I met a couple of headless people. They patted my arm but didn't speak.
Strange little man bird on a fruit box.
Shag/cormorant (not sure which), on this building.
Deep coloured street.
Cashmere jumpers-the green one is now mine-£8!
After walking all the way down, we walked all the way back up again. Earlier we had seen a big meal going on outside a restaurant-some kind of celebration. When we got back to that part there was a party with dancing in the street. This man, with his amazing costume, was attracting a lot of attention, but there were also a lot of other colourfully dressed and eccentric people there. A band was playing. They called over a singer to do one song-'Wicked Game' by Chris Isaak. We thought it might actually be him, but I am not sure. Whoever it was though he, and the band, were very good.

Pastel coloured houses. Like sugared almonds, a favourite sweet of mine.
Holland Park. I have never been there before. It is really lovely.
A distant view of Linda Sue and Devi.
I am meeting Linda Sue on Thursday as I have no work on that day. Excited!
