Parks like this are essential to big cities. We all need fresh clean air. I guess this park in particular was an estate used for hunting
After spending the previous night at the Rythem Factory I thought my lungs might collapse from all the smoke if I didn't treat them to some pure oxygen. Despite the cloudy haze, the bar scene was great! One room featured East London Breakbeat Bass, special guest starring Aquasky from Australia. The MCs were amazing, really fun and witty. The service counter and couches were fairly empty, everyone was dancing! The second room played oldies with a Housey inclination. I wasn't in there too much but checked in just before we left for a dance to Brown Eyed Girl with a beat.
Possibly a combination of many factors, by Sunday night we were feeling weak and exausted. We made a big pasta dinner, watched Lost in Translation, and went to bed early. It's partly sunny this Monday morning. I went for a walk around a few blocks with a chocolate croissant. These seems to be a lot of window plants and doorstep gardens. I spotted a pub from nealy every corner. There are lots of city workers, wearing neon yellow/green vests, and lots of men in buisness suits. It seemed pretty busy for a residential area but then again it seems to be busy everywhere in this city. I predict there will be more walking this afternoon.
