London Calling


Kasnim, po običaju. 'Samo' pola godine, ali dovoljno da stignem na Davidov rođendan. Kad mi je već izložba David Bowie Is ostala jedna od najdražih uspomena na London. Čije sunce (a i letnje kiše) lepo legnu u ove maglovite zimske dane. Ili to ja tražim opravdanja za pola godine kašnjenja. Kako god, London je poseban, baš kao i Bowie. I nije čudo što je on počeo svoju karijeru tamo, jer je London grad koji prihvata. Nije da imam nameru da solim pamet posle pet dana turističkog sprinta, ali to je prvi utisak. London, grad gde je sve u redu. I gde je svako u redu. Iako velik, i dalje po meri čoveka. I zelen, i za šetnju, i za bicikl. I trčanje po Tate Modernu ali i 80s ekstravaganci From Club to Catwalk. Da vidim kako su Vivienne Westwood, Leigh Bowery i Boy George zajedno cugali u zemlji naramenica, a bogami i radili svašta lepo i kreativno. Naravno, prvi dan sam otrčala na buvljak, šta ću kad je Portobello Road market najlepši subotom? Nedelju sam ostavila za Brick lane, gde je, pogađate, takođe bio uplaniran - buvljak :) Više gledanja nego kupovine, doduše - ovde je vintage toliko na (pre)ceni da ću, ako ikada budem planirala da se preselim u London i obogatim, poći sa kuferom punim blaga sa mog Najlona - za odsečene leviske iz 80-tih i neon trash košulje plaća se suvim zlatom! Od Indonezije i Japana, do Kenije i Argentine - ako već nećete da pazarite, u Brick Lane-u uvek možete zanimljivo da klopate - miomirisne tezge pristupačnih cena biće neodoljive za sve gastro-avanturiste. Ipak, najviše žalim što nismo stigli do restorančića inspirisanog filmovima Wesa Andersona...to ću kad se vratim :)

Pet dana svakako je premalo za London, baš zato jedan photospam, u ime letnjih avantura i uspomena! Svima nam ispod jelke želim puno putovanja, jer su nova iskustva nešto najlepše! (povrh svega, možete da smarate sa fotkama bajatim pola godine i da to i dalje bude ok :)

I am late, as usual. Barely half a year, but just in time for David's B-Day! Don't be surprised by this timing, as David Bowie Is exibition definitely won as my favorite London memory. Besides, sunny days and a bit of London rain, just to keep things interesting, go so well with these gray, foggy winter back home. I might as well be looking for excuses for being half a year late. Whatever the reason, I am glad to get back to my memories once again, as London is special, just as much as Bowie is. No wonder he started his career there because London is a city that accepts. Not that I turned into a London expert after a five-day tourist sprint, but that is my first impression. London, a city where everything is alright. And everyone. Even though it's huge, it's still humane and accessible. And green. Both for walking and cycling. And running all over Tate Modern and 80s extravagance From Club to CatwalkTo hang out with Vivienne Westwood, Leigh Bowery and Boy George and see all the fun and creativity that burst from the London club scene in the eighties. Of course, as soon as we landed I went to check out a flea market. It's not my fault, it's just that Portobello Road market is most beautiful on Saturdays. Sunday has also been reserved for - guess what - Brick Lane market :) More looking than shopping, though, as vintage goods here are so highly (over)priced! If I ever decide to come to London and get rich, I will come with my suitcases filled with vintage treasures from my beloved Nylon flea market - as cutoff Levi's jeans and trashy 80s neon shirts here are paid in pure gold. From Indonesia and Japan to Kenya and Argentina - if you're not going to shop in Brick Lane, at least you can eat. Olfactory temptations coming from numerous stands will leave no gastro-adventurist indifferent! My biggest regret is that we didn't have enough time to visit a Wes Anderson-inspired little restaurant in Brick Lane...

Five days surely were too short for London, and that's why I give you a bit of photo-spam, in the name of summer adventures and memories! I wish us all a lot of travelling in the following year, because getting to know the World is the most important thing in life! (besides, you can always spam people with your half a year old travel photos and it will still be ok :)
