We're staying in Camden Town, home of the famous Camden Market, and have enjoyed hanging out there and browsing in the stalls and souk-like shops, and remembering what it was like back in the hippie days. There's a heavy Goth vibe now, but a little bit of everything, from Indian import shops to Turkish handwork to antiques to lots and lots of clothing retail. Bargaining is expected. And the street food is great, with every flavor from all over the world. For me, the most fun has been watching the people.
