London is obsessed. Everywhere I go cricket is on TVs and crowds of people are watching.
It looks like England have the ashes. Probably not a good time to be an Australian in London.
My friend Benny is responsible for my new found enjoyment of cricket. And he will be proud to know that I have passed that onto Howard. He has been trying to do some work, but I have been watching the cricket and he managed to get entranced by it too. I have a bet with him for 2 shiny silver 50p pieces.
I felt like a spy yesterday, I went up into Regent Park, where a few thousand cricket fans were drinking and watching the match on a big screen. There were a lot more English than Australians, by about 50:1. I kept quiet and moved through the crowd.
Spent some time today walking around Brick Lane, an arty alternative area to the east of central London. It was very cool. I spent over an hour in a shop talking to the Italian guy who makes great coffee and sells really cool things. I also talked to an old guy outside his junk shop. I have photos of both these guys and will post them soon.
Starbucks are ripping me off with their wireless internet prices and crap coffee.
Maybe Ill do the London eye tomorrow. I’m off to meet up with Phil Stevens now. Then to back up some files onto my Ipod.
Also, what do you think of this photo? Yes, im talking to you with the eyes who is reading this, go on, it s not that hard to leave a comment and i really want to know what you think.
