Exploring London

Wendy is a fellow expat living in Notting Hill and when I first moved here I emailed her about 53892058920352 questions and she was so helpful with every single one.  She really knew London and I trusted her recommendations.

It’s quite fitting that she has just started her own company called…….

London In A Day

It’s a private tour guide company that will show you London in 6 hours or less without getting lost, using  map or getting stressed.

Check out her blog as well as her company!

Brick Lane Market

Once we got to the point where we should have made a right we realized that we were in the right spot. Graffiti everywhere, all different types of food vendors and antiques lined up neatly along the street.

Inside an old brewery there were numerous food, jewelry, and clothing stands.  All by local artists which is my favorite (all but the food of course).

This is such a cool market and if you haven’t gone yet I’d suggest you make your way there next Sunday (9am-5pm).

A few more of my favorite shots from today:

School Field Trip

The marketing students and MBA students went to the Tower of London for the day to meet with the marketing team that works there.  It was very boring.  It’s one of the top 5 tourist spots for London but we all weren’t sure why.  After spending the day there we had to give a 10 minute presentation about ways to market the tower better.  At first we were all scared of what to say because we were pretty much telling the team that they were doing a horrible job and we had better ideas than they did but in the end they took it very well and really enjoyed our presentations.

I didn’t even bother taking photos inside the tower but here are some from the outside.  You can say you were there since you have seen these photos.

Don’t waste £17 ($17) to go inside.

*It was pretty cool that our school planned this for us and we got to meet the marketing team though.
