Anyway I didn't go there today for a walk down memory lane - I went to visit the "world famous" Portobello Market.
I was a little disappointed with the market, for a start every tourist in London must have been there - stopping to take photographs every couple of steps. I didn't find the "Blue Door" from the movie Notting Hill and I got fed-up with the crowds. Every year the Notting Hill Carnival is held down these streets - I couldn't begin to imagine how crowded that must be but I think after today I would definitely prefer to watch it on a screen then to be there!
I took a photograph of this building because I liked the stone carvings. I wasn't tempted to buy any of the goods for sale in the flea market but I really liked the look of this vegetable. Actually I have had it before but I guessed my house guest hadn't - so we had it for supper.
