England London Market Paella

4 July 2010

Administration day

Today I did 2 things which less diligent workers wouldnt do.
First of all I went and did my own laundry using my own money, which costs a fortune ($20 for 1 load of washing) and 2 hours of your time on a Sunday. Everyone else I work with would just pay for the hotel to send it out and have it done for $100.
I hate doing the laundry, finding change was a drama, I had to buy food I didnt want just to get change, but my clothes are clean now and I can go to work tomorrow.

Secondly, I changed hotels, I did this to save money for the company. The cheap hotel wasnt available when I got here last week but it is now so I am moving. The added advantage is that the hotel I have moved to has an in room fridge and microwave, so I can buy cheap supermarket meals instead of eating out to save still more money.
Those of you at my work reading this, pay attention, theres no excuses anymore for the huge amounts of money you all waste!!!!

Upon arriving at my new hotel after lugging my bags on 2 tube trains and up 1000 stairs, I discovered the street was closed off for the Earls Court street fair. This was largely food stalls which I have photographed below, theres a story involving police about one of the photos.

In the evening I went for a walk around Chelsea and Fulham and the amount of fancy cars was ridiculous, I didnt take photos though as I know that bores everyone that can be bothered to read this.
But then...I heard the most amazing noise and before I could get my camera out a pagani zonda roared past at what sounded like 10,000 RPM. The driver then hit the brakes and did a flick turn with plenty of tyre smoke and went back the other way, all on a busy road in traffic, and all without me being able to take a photo.

Heres the stage for the street festival, literally right under my hotel room window. Luckily it stopped by mid evening. But before this I was treated to a series of bad cover bands, including Lady Gaga done by a guy. Isnt the real lady gaga supposed to be a guy anyway?

Random architecture shot of the day. This is where the Zonda driver described above decided to light up the tyres and be an idiot. The risk of public failure was huge.
