Saturday came to London with the joy of the sunshine. Following an early wake-up and breakfast, we walked to Broadway Market by the Regent’s Canal. At weekend, for us the best time for walking in canal is early hours of the day, before big happy families, lost tourists and crazy cyclists time. The Regent’s Canal walk is one of our favorites in London. Every time you can see different boats each with its own character, discover little details like a street/canal art, a wood fired earth oven or meet a big heron in the middle of the city.

After the Broadway Market, we walked back home, then to Camden Passage Market and Chapel Market. Bought some photography books, some christmas decorations, made some grocery shopping and tea time, we enjoyed our recorded dramas, photography books at home.

We were expecting another sunny day today but, you know… Then we changed our plans to go to Colombia Road Flower Market and following a lazy morning at home, we went to King’s Head to celebrate the “Super Sunday” accompanied by few pints. First match of the day, Aston Villa-Man United was a good quality 90 minutes football. Man United won with a score 0-3 against Aston Villa. The next match Tottenham-Liverpool, despite the 5 goals of Liverpool wasn’t as tasty as the first match but the result was nice. (Sorry Terry, “it” happens).

Now it’s the time for curry, then tea and British crime dramas at home. Super Sunday=Happy Sunday.

In Turkey since 31 of May people resist against the government. At the beginning it was for protecting our trees in Gezi Park…  Then it turned to a resistance to protect the democracy, the human rights, the values of our republic. Since then we lost six bright young person because of police attacks while practising our most natural right: right to protest.

Yesterday night, until early hours of this morning, Turkish people was again in the streets and  not only in Turkey, in lots of parts of the world including London, protesting Turkish government and police.

Diren Türkiye! Resist Turkey!

Pickering Street in Angel, is one of the streets we pass at least once a day. When we moved first to Islington, there wasn’t any graffiti in this street. Then appeared the girl with the dog, then during the Diamond Jubilee appeared The Queen, then weightlifter boy and finally the dog. Each time we walk in Essex Road and pass through Pickering Street, we check if another street art work appeared. So far we have:

I believe in Angels…

London Street Art01 Ada Street

Yesterday morning we walked to Broadway Market by the canal. For being the Easter weekend, canalway walk side was quite (no bicycle terrorism) and despite few flakes of snow -yes snow!- it was a pleasant walk.

The market wasn’t crowded and there were few new stalls. Another newcomer to the market was the big blue bird in Ada Street. The olympic street art work which was there before and which was vandalised, wasn’t there anymore. It looks like the Londoners are getting over the olympic syndrome step by step….
