Columbia Road

I was in London to meet friends from Spain,
it was three years since we last saw each other, lots to catch up.
We went to East London, had a lovely time away from the high
street chaos, browsing lovely shops. Had the best Italian food
n a little deli and a coffee break in a truly vintage tea room placed
in the back of a vintage shop and family run, it was almost like being in their home.
One of  my favourite part of London, with independent shops, cafes, flower market.

Helena, thanks I don't know but surely it is cute!
Janis, thank you dear : )))
Mimii, you can write in french if you prefer, I do understand it (or at least I think so :^)) but my written french is a disaster! merci.
Thank you all, your words make me happy!

I love that handsome fox door knocker. I have seen one on a green door on my walks locally and I wish said fox would follow me home and guard my door.
