The British Museum is too big to see in a day. I’lld probably recommend a full week to go through the entire building. I still don’t think you will have had a proper proper look in the end… ūüėÄ There was just too much stuff in there! Tip: you have to set out in the morning as they close 5pm sharp…or was it 4…We breezed through the Egyptian, Greek and African sections, saw the famous Nigerian Ibeji Twins and Cleopatra’s…

For my birthday last month we dined at Sushi Samba. Sushi Samba serves a blend of Japanese, Brazilian and Peruvian food on the 38th and 39th floors of Heron Towers, Bishopsgate, London…We stuck to Japanese as I had a craving for sushi as always. The sushi was great and pricey, the soy sauce a bit too salty. The ambience and view I will say is what we paid for that day. Next time I go there I will be trying…

Found some pictures from one time we stayed on the East End of¬†London and thought to share parts of our experience… So In the summer of 2013 we booked a room for a week on AirBnB¬† around the Whitechapel/Shoreditch area. When we arrived we were surprised at the how multicultural the area was. We had read about the area, but the articles we read did not do it justice. After settling¬†down we decided to take a walk to get familiar…

So, August last year I and a couple of friends decided to attend The Notting Hill Carnival¬†for the first time. In case you do not know the Notting Hill Carnival is an annual event celebrated by the Afro-Carribean communities in the UK. ¬†The¬†carnival started after the abolition of slavery around 1964. Before then, Afro-Carribeans were not allowed to hold any carnivals¬†even though they came from a culture of carnivals . To celebrate their newly acquired freedom they had carnivals where…
