England London Edgware Road Kebab

3 July 2010

Edgware road is great

I didnt get back from Wales until about 7:30pm, and seeing as though most of the tube is closed for weekend repairs, requiring me to take 3 trains, I instead decided to walk back to my hotel from Paddington and find dinner along the way.
This took me to Edgware road, which is the middle eastern area of London, and I like it there a lot, lots of outdoor diners and general chaos.
All the places have people smoking a shisha (which smells really nice, like licorice), and you can see men and women with a million dollars worth of gold, as well as women in full burkas. The food is cheap and looked fantastic, I picked a place at random and wasnt dissapointed.

Heres the scene inside the restaurant. Outside it was chaotic. They have an army of staff in this small place and at least 3 of them seem to be assigned to security duty on the footpath. I saw them move people along, help people with prams, make sure the line for the bus was orderly etc.

Marble Arch station is at the end of the road, and theres a bunch of muslims guys all in white you can see here lecturing and handing out pamphlets on the merits of Sharia law.
Meanwhile a muslim in black pyjamas came along and started having a heated argument with white pyjama guys (you can just see them against the wall if you click the picture to enlarge). I presumed it was sunni vs shia, and if I stuck around a car bomb might go off, so I headed into the tube.
