For some reason the streets in Europe remind me of the Magic Kingdom in Disney World.
Those were quite the pictures.
You warned me..... but I still came out of this blog hungry :(
Thanks Alaska GamerSweep, that really does not surprise me.
Very nice pictures.
SAAAAAAARF LONDON!! YEAH BOIAnd tooting has no charm at all. While i lived there someone broke into my room and stole my 360. The bastards.
Dracula Land looks pretty sweet.
It's SARF London Sweep ;) Tooting has it's charm I suppose but it does not seem to have changed much since Citizen Smith (TV series), whenever I see re-runs of that it looks as downtrodden as it does now!.
I didnt know you were a london head, where abouts are you from? I was living in Tooting Broadway last year - SOUF LONDON woop!
Man it's been such a long time since i was in Europe. You just made me remember how much i want to go again xD
Awesome pics man. Thanks for adding these. I love me some cigars as well.
Lots of great stuff to do in London!
It was taken on Mario Galaxy launch night, the river is the Thames that runs through our city. That building is Battersea Power Station, it's from the Victorian era. It's due to be turned into a "entertainment complex" soon. They are going to keep the the distinct style of the old building for obvious reasons.I think it looks cool.
I hope you don't smoke cigars too often, sir. Those cherry tomatoes are great, fresh fruit is the best. Oh man, I so want to steal those Chinese coins and the bamboo brush wrap you got! Dracula's land looks like a neat place to eat at. So where is the Super Mario Galaxy advertisement at? That is super duper cool!Great photos! Oh and... THE CAKE IS A LIE! :P
I always liked the Victorian Era. I'm also a fan of Oscar Wilde, of course, I'm a theater whore or nerd. Nice pictures, thanks.
A cut n paste job from my Gamespot blog :P
Horses bottoms in the morning. On the subject of food, the following post will contain lots of it, so consider yourselves warned..
Outside Les Miz in "Theatre Land"
I Love this shop on Charing Cross Road, smoking Cigars occasionally is one of my greatest pleasures in life. I hate cigarettes though!. People who love reading may of heard of Charing Cross
It's olde, 1820s something.
It used to be orange-
I often ponder the same thing:)
Heaven. I am partial to a Monte Cristo myself, which is what I bought. My girlfriend likes Cigars too if they are mild. Monte Cristo's are in the left hand top of the picture, un-tubed.
My favourite Italian Deli, Camisa & Sons. I heart Italian food!, but adore great food in general
I ended buying some Tuscan Pancetta as well as some juicy sweet cherry tomatoes, hand picked from the side of Mt Etna, They're delicious simply roasted with olive oil, sprigs of fresh Basil and good Balsamic. Modena has the best, the sweet sticky type is perfection. I also got some really strong Gorgonzola cheese and some Sicilian split olives, which are really nice, best I have tasted that's for sure.
Just look at those cherry tomatoes!
The Dim Sum lunchboxes are fantastic
So is everything else, I love the scent that fills Chinatown, I don't think there could be any better advert for the food.
I bought some Char Siu (Roast Pork)
I also bought these old chinese coins and a bamboo brush wrap for some chinese brushes I have.
This shop sells great engravings, I bought tow today. As you may already know, I heart art!
I bought these, I just could not resist. Lately I have become fascinated with the London of the past, the gritty side especially. James Drummond depicts the Gin drinking and prostitution well I think. Such scenes were common place around the time this engraving was made in 1870.
I also bought this JMW Turner landscape of the Piazzi chapel in Florence in Italy. I love Turner. I managed to haggle the price down due to the blotch in the sky (not a technical term)
I also went to "The Cinema Store", that surprisingly sells all manner of cinema stuff from models to autographs
I have had my eye of this lately, I may well buy it...eventually
After all that hard work shopping, lol, I then decided to grab a slice of Strawberry Cheesecake and a cream tea at Valerie's
For dinner I took advantage of the happy hour at this fine establishment, I had the "Bat wings" They are in exact fact chicken wings that have been blackened with Tamarind paste, and then char-grilled with honey.
