I explored a new neighbourhood yesterday. There are so many of these little villages and neighbourhoods in London that are tucked away, and unless you make a point of walking around there, you may never know they exist. Even if they're just around the corner.
But first, can I share something I came across on YouTube yesterday that made me CRY with laughter. Don't know why, but this is the funniest shit I have heard in a week. A month. Three months.
I really needed the laugh and it felt good to howl until tears rolled down my cheeks.
Listen to the end.
Now. The neighbourhood I am currently exploring is a place in London called Fitzrovia.
It's a sort of mix between old Victorian housing, lots of busy restaurants and classic pubs and shopping nearby. It's near enough to Soho to be taken seriously, but far enough away that you can happily avoid nightlife detritus and trannies if you need to.
Anyway, it's good to wander around the streets and find a new London. (In semi-darkness, but that's to be expected. Can't drag my SAD lamp around with me everywhere...)
Census results out.)
