Just got back from London last night so I thought I would share some semi-blog relevant photos. Unfortunately not much skating happened, though the weather and climate where infect PEFECT. We flew in from Chicago arriving at 4:30am on Xmas Day and no trains ran into the city, just a special bus. We thought it would be nice to kill time walking around in a drowsy stoopper. This lead to some careless skating on cracked sidewalks, which resulted in re-injuring my knee, which has been pretty jacked up since August.
We did manage to get in some good sight seeing, though a bit depressing in my injured state at the south banks.
Also some insight to the street-stylings of the “skateboarder” from a vintage shop.
An obligatory stop at Vx
Secret Society of Vegans for the a snack and a T-shirt. If you find yourself in London and read this blog, this is a pretty obvious stop. Mrs. Fakie and I had a Vegan Cheddar Onion scone and an “Epic Cookie of Win” from Ms. Cupcake on our first visit, and then smuggled a bunch of other snacks back home.
great post mr fakie.
