London at Christmas time

[The decorations at Covent Garden]

Marius and I took a long weekend in London to see Carolyn, do some Christmas shopping and see London's version of Christmas spirit. We stayed in a little sudio style room in the Bloomsbury area of London, very close to where Carolyn is living. It was a really nice little place that was quiet and central. 

We went around to the different shopping areas that we didn't see much of last year: Covent Garden, Portabello Road and Brick Lane. And of course there was plenty of mulled wine sampling and eating. As well as a Christmas concert put on by Clare College Cambridge.

Now we're looking forward to Carolyn's visit beginning on Tuesday night!
