David Bowie and Betty Boop spotted in Brixton. And some cool guys too!!

Hello all!!

I have been feeling pretty good lately, but I am also very restless these days. Can't sleep, can't eat. So, I took a stroll down to my favourite place and this is what I found:

I bumped into a very good friend of mine on my way to the market. He was waiting for a large delivery of ginger beer from the guy from the corner shop. They shook on the transaction gone well. Spot the clothes my friend is wearing. Yes, it was that warm in London yesterday.

Brixton is a welcoming place, as the sign says: Be Our Guest!

And now for a bit of window shopping. This little bird is on sale. Any takers?

This is a fairly new shop. It sells cloths for men, and it also doubles up as a barber shop.

Some time ago, Brixton got its own currency so the money spent here, stays here. It contributes to the local economy. And who do we have on one of the bank notes? The legendary David Bowie. It is very fitting, he is also from Brixton.

Look who I spotted hiding under the table!! The fabulous Betty Boop.

As I mentioned before, you can find everything in Brixton market. And isn't this a fabulous service and a wonderful poster? Long eyelashes anyone? Yes, please.

And just as I was leaving the market, I spotted a very cool guy. I pretended I was taking pictures of his surroundings, but I think he knew I was snapping him, so he posed a little. I love this shot!

And as I was about to walk up the hill to go home, I took a shot of the cafe in front of the Ritzy. The weather was so beautiful, no wonder so many people were sitting outside.

I hope your weekend was peaceful and you had a good weather. Have a great week.

I used to live in Brixton, it's a GREAT place.

By the way, just finished reading a book that mention Brockwell Park and Tuzla. How's about that!
