I promise these are the last London pictures I am going to post here ...

The last days in London were pretty amazing too, even that the wind almost blew us away on Friday afternoon...
We went to Borough Markets and had a good start with a coffee at "Monmouth" which is right across of the markets and has really good coffee and even filters coffee right in front of you...The market is so amazing with its super fresh food. When you go you should get a one of those chorizo rolls for which the people actually line up.
We also went to Portobello Road which was a bit too crowded so we left and spend more time around Brick Lane. We had a really great pizza for lunch there and went to some nice little stores like "Labour and Wait" or "Unto the Last" which sell really great stuff....like old kitchen tools or handmade and great designed furniture...
Something funny happened to me when we were on our way to catch up with a friend to go to a pub...We got out at Covent Garden station and took the long escalators there when a few people on other side of the escalators suddenly shouted "Where is Wally" and pointed to me saying "There is Wally"...I didn't knew the this kids book where you need to find this guy with a red hat and glasses and probably looked a bit irritated but found it funny when my boyfriend explained to me what they meant...
Well...I have a red hat but my glasses are not as round as Wally's : )

Happy Thursday to everyone...
