Thames River Festival

London, Markets

Today, I went to get my fixed camera! ❤ Then Melissa and I went to the Thames River Festival, which had all these really neat kiosks and stands that sold handmade jewelry and bags and accessories etc. It was BUSY.

I splurged and bought a £35 top that is gorgeous and adorable… and probably doesn’t fit me as well as the 6 foot tall girl who was selling it. But hopefully it will look cooler when I wear it back home. There were sand artists doing really cool things on the side of the Thames.

And we wandered through the streets and found some cool sightings. I found this Banksy-knockoff (unless it actually IS by Banksy, but you can never really tell) work of art on one of the walls.

We found and participated in a wine tasting which was alright, but earned me an ugly red stamp on the back of my hand. The London Bridge had lots of cool organic foods and halfway through turned into a hayloft. Kids were throwing bits of straw everywhere and making a mess. It was really bizarre.

At the end of the afternoon, a beautiful sunset over the Thames.

Then we took the Tube home only to rush to get ready to go out again for a free night out at a club called Pep-C, which turned out to be WAY BELOW the hype. It was full of well-dressed pretentious and unattractive people who either danced and were gross or looked okay but wanted nothing to do with you. So I pretty much left at midnight and called it a night. You live and learn, I guess, and I got a free night out of it. Pictures tomorrow, when I visit Brighton!
