Which way to my London?

So the last I let you into my world, I had just moved to London! Well how time flies huh! It's 7 months later and London is still kicking out amazing surprises!

It turns that there is about 100 different London's all in one London! Now this is either going to make perfect sense to you...or you will think im a bit of an East London tw*t! But basically you can walk down the same street every day and never see anything. Then all of a sudden. for no reason. You're on the same street on a Saturday at 7:30 am...and it's turned into a heaven of shinny things!

There are a million examples of this, but one of my closest ones is Brick Lane! One night in the week, you head down there to haggle with a man over a very good curry. Friday comes around and you head out for a drink. One drink turns into a couple. A bar with a DJ turns into an accidental dirty warehouse rave type situation!

Now I'm not suggesting you would. But if you went down there just a few hours later, there would already be a bazaar of cool stalls opening up selling everything from broken Sony Walkman (Because they're cool) to a necklace made out of a broken Sony Walkman (because they're cool)!

Anyway, long story short, you have to explore the London you're in! I mean, you wouldn't want to live in a really cool part of town for two years and not realise brick lane had a cool market in the day no would you!!
