About 2 months ago, I travelled to a distant land far from my home called….LONDON!

I graced London with my presence for a 3 day trip where I met some old friends, made some new friends, ate lots of English Breakfasts, rode a double decker bus, got yelled at by the bus driver, saw the police chase down and arrest a person, got yelled at by some locals for trying to take photos of it, skateboarded, showed some art work and photos at Parlour Skate shop on Hackney Road, and went to the Mile End Skate park.

I even visited the queen at the Buckingham Palace late one night and saw with my own eyes, Big Ben.  To say thee least, London is a great city!  Transportation there was easy to navigate, people were very friendly and helpful, and Tesco’s were all the rage.  I wish I could have spent some more time there, but I know I will be back some day.  Signing off!
