|This is what you see after you exit the tube and make a right. I was disappointed at the chintz.|
|Reminded me of that cheap tee-shirt area next to Tower Records. Or St. Marks Place.|
|But I kept going, hoping to find something a little more interesting.|
Lots ofshops had creative exteriors.
|After five minutes, I found myself on a little bridge over a |
waterway. In the distance was this sign.
|To the right are kiosks of cheap fried food, which you can eat on motorbikes overlooking|
the lock. It was kind of eh, so I crossed the street and went to the other side.
|This side was much more interesting. There were all these interesting little restaurants.|
|The west side of Camden Lock.|
|Duck confit for £6?! I wish I hadn't eaten already.|
|Any place with a nice second-hand bookstore must be the place.|
|Londoners getting their food on in Camden.|
|I remembered this ice cream shop from the guidebook.|
|See those grey urns behind that guy? That's liquid nitrogen, used|
to instantly freeze the the ingredients.
|Caramel white chocolate ice cream with pistachio and fleur de sel. Incredible.|
|I kept going and found myself in an old stables yard that had been turned |
into a marketplace. This really reminded me of Taiwan. Same chintzy clothing
and carnival atmosphere. It's probably full of teenagers on the weekend.
|Odd but interesting gazebos to eat under.|
|Mixed in with all the cheap stalls, there were a few shops with genuine pieces.|
Like this place, run by an Italian guy from Bologna.
|The stables yard had all these statues of horses.|
|More horse sculptures and two shops of slightly chintzy retro clothing.|
