I know I said I’d write post-Portugal since I’ve just been wandering the neighborhood and doing mundane things like laundry, but then I realized I can post about my hood so folks can see what they should look forward to when they visit (see what I did there?)
Here are a few shots….
The next day I decided I can run Islington and check out the neighborhood at a faster pace. You could call it a run with various pitstops.
By the third day of wandering, I got a bit more focused. I got a map for the Islington Design Festival and decided to conquer all ten locations plus the four “fringe” location. Collecting stamps from each location means that you can earn free prizes- what!? I’m in!
Shoutout for you if you finished reading this “in-between” post!
Shoutout to Caitlin for introducing me to the phrase “you alright?” which means “how are you doing?” NOT “are you ok?” – an important difference to know so you aren’t over-sharing your emotions with that woman helping you behind the deli counter.
Shoutout to Ev for my first piece of snail mail.
Shoutout to Sayuri and Joe for their anniversary.
Shoutout to Jose for the Mi Linguino blog.
And drum roll please…. Shout out to Nate Ryan gettin his learning on while looking oh so dapper- seriously get this kid a contract! Get in line- he’s good looking and a mixels engineer!
