Sunday stroll through the Chinese New Year

Sunday stroll through the Chinese New Year

Sunday morning my honey and I walked outside and it was lovely and sunny.

“What do you want to do?” Honey asks.

“I don’t know maybe walk up to Hampstead Heath and see more of it”  I reply.

We walk a few feet and I laugh to myself and say…

Ummm let’s go to Trafalgar Square and see what the Chinese New Year celebration is like instead…” Duh.

Of course there was no plan, because if there had been we wouldn’t have just had this view

So we walked around a bit, but I didn’t really feel like elbowing my way to the front so we just walked around and people watched. This kid had a excellent view… but is he yawning?

So we walked up to Leicester Square next. It was fun walking in the street, not having to worry about which way I am suppose to look before crossing. They were packed!

This precious little guy was watching some gymnasts but I was more interested in watching him than them.

We walked into the square and it was lovely. The buildings, the fountains, the people. Honey pointed out where the celeb folk walk the red carpet for Premiers.

We watched a dad make his child cry by running through cold water with him…

We didn’t venture into Chinatown because there were just toooooo many people but it was fun to be in the area. I wish I had taken more pictures, but I just don’t remember to take my camera out all the time and instead get caught up in the moment and enjoy the view myself. I’ll work on that.

Then we wandered back to Camden Town and checked out the food tents at the Loch.

We found a tent with these little cornbread sandwiches (for lack of a better word)… of course I didn’t take a picture of their sign to know what it was really called, but it was my favorite food of the day.

Bean, beef and cheese on cornbread… I mean… come on!

They were really dry.

And finally for dessert… Crepe with sugar, lemon and cinnamon.

Absolutely delish!

After that we popped into a pub for a pint and to warm up a little. We watched some Rugby and enjoyed the rest of our lazy Sunday. London is such a great city to be in. I genuinely LOVE IT!
