I've made a gallery…. to share the rest of the photos i took yesterday.
I walked through the market yesterday. It was an interesting experience…I was treated with great suspicion with my camera. I was aware of a distance from people as I photographed… discussion about my presence and the camera was obvious and I made a discreet exit pretending I didn't understand.
I might be wrong, but I imagine many are illegal immigrants…
I'm glad I didn't take my big lens with me….
Past the confrontational markets I came upon vintage clothing and textile craft markets… the smell of food was delicious and I bought Moroccan lamb for my lunch and took it back to my hotel. It was delicious.
I'd already had a bagel, cream cheese and smoked salmon earlier in the morning in another cafe for breakfast.
When I got back, there was a note to say my luggage would arrive at the hotel in 10 minutes…. I decided to stay in and wait for it….
I laid on the bed and instantly fell asleep for an hour and a half…..!!!
The luggage arrived and I was able to change clothes, and get the cords for my camera to upload photos…
A huge weight lifted from my shoulders and I decided to tale the big camera and photograph. I have purchased an "Oyster card" which allows me travel for $65 for the entire time I'm here… and it's exciting traveling on the tube.
It's a bit like being in a live video game…..!!!
The photos in the gallery are of the markets in the morning.
Covent garden, and Trafalgar Square.
It's chilly today for the first time on my trip.. so I think I will have to do inside trips today.
