That Portobello Life

Since moving to London I have learned a couple of things:
Number 1: You must walk as fast as you can, no matter what situation your in, even if your not in a rush- you must walk fast. Don't run because your look stupid but you must always, always, always, fast walk.  No excuses.
Number 2: Drinking wine on a monday night is totally acceptable. As is drinking wine every other day of the week. Or any alcoholic beverage in general. Basically i've been drunk at least a good 3 times a week.  Whoops.
Number 3: Portobello Road is life. My mum lived on Portobello Road when she was my age and up until I was 5 I lived just round the corner. It still hasn't lost its charm and every time I walk down there I instantly feel happy. If your ever in the area, trek to the very end of portobello and find 'Lisboa' Cafe, its a very traditional portugese bakery and they do the best custard tarts in the whole wide world. Go order a coffee and a 'nata' (custard tart) and get lost in the sounds of the portugese nattering away. You'll instantly feel like you have been teleported to Portugal. Its really wonderful. Thats why I adore London, the different nationalities really make it such a beautiful and diverse place. I wouldn't want to live anywhere else...
