The lovely Louisa lives in the area Brixton in central London. I met Lou almost two years ago in Addis, she lives now in London teaching in a Waldorf school. Below is a very flattering photo of her eating chicken wings.
The Brixton area up until about 5 or 6 years ago was fairly run down and now has been in a few ways revitalized by the city and private investment. One such example is the Brixton Market - operating as an open air market during the day, and at night there are many small restaurants and shops that open to serve dinner of various cuisines. We checked out this Chinese dumpling place, a vast difference in price from the NY spot I had tried a mere week before. But again, this is London the city of £££.
Later on in the week I met a friend William Lloyd George (hows that for a proper English name?) for a short walk around Soho and to chat and catch up. We hadn't seen each other in about 6 months. We met in Addis - he was doing journalism in the same time that I lived there, around 13 months. We walked and talked and saw a few sights, some that he had forgotten, all of which i had never seen.
Ended the day with a walk around Tower High street and the Banking district of central London.
