Exploring London




















Exploring London with my twenty-two year old son today was very different to the last time we visited the capital together, which was probably ten years ago. This time, we had a different purpose (to collect his visa for teaching English in China) compared to the sight-seeing of our previous visit, but we still had fun. We explored Shoreditch, Hackney and Camden, perusing record shops, independent bookshops, vintage clothes shops and vegan eateries. He was a great guide and good company. These photos are a record of our day - I hope you enjoy them.

  5. Great photos and good to see different parts of the city - I love Camden but don't know Hackney or Shoreditch at all. Hope your son enjoys his time in China.

  9. My best friend taught in Xiamen for a year in the 80s and another friend a couple of years later - he wrote about his travels in China in Boxing with Shadows (Brian Johnston - now a well-known travel writer in Australia!)... hope your son has a great experience, too!!
