The weekend was very interesting with a few activities happening around London. I had mentioned about the 10mile walk we were supposed to do two weeks back...well we didnt go because the rains completely spoilt it and so we decided we'd go the next week which was the previous Sat. Apparently, the World Naked Bike Ride,London was on that weekend and guess who was all excited about it...us. So Saturday was spent at Hyde Park watching the nangu bike riders protesting against oil dependency. I was initially a bit embarrassed, mainly because we were there with this other couple- who didn't seem one bit interested- and they were quite uncomfortable. Ro on the other hand wandered off to take pics and i had to make lame conversation with them about what...naked men and women..well sort of! I think it takes immense courage to appear nude in public. I mean, to be able to be absolutely fine with your body and to appear in public like that would be a massive boost to your self-confidence right? I'd like to think of it that way.
Rest of the day was spent at the Camden market with food and drinks and then at Edgeware road for dinner- thorough Mediterranean fare. I keep thinking i should try the hookah and the sulaimani tea there, but I'm jinxed. Something or the other always comes up. This time it rained and hookah's are allowed only outside.
This was a one man show..was brilliant

Sunday was good fun at the Blackheath Bike and Kite Fest organized by the Lewisham Council. I guess the pics will explain the rest.
