Paand A Bowl Includin' The Snow



The snow has been relentless in its determination to bring London to a grinding halt! The traders of the Ridley Road Market, however, remained staunch in their resilience to the elements and it was business (not quite) as usual.


There was still fruit and veg to be sold and gifts to be bought.


Snow drifts.


Yours truly


Buses were still taking people from one place to
t'other despite the poor
visibility.




Stay warm!

  4. Ahhh yup winter is upon us! We've had a lot of snow on this side of the world too. It's pretty to look at, but so dangerous behind the wheel when you don't have winter tires or 4 wheel drive...or er, a giant hick truck.

  11. Way back when I was in my first year at uni (2002) I lived in Greenwich. We wanted to go to Woolwich market (Greenwich market is not a proper market in my eyes, it's just shops without roofs and walls). Woolwich market is a proper market..the way it should be! Anyway, we went shopping and when they came out, it had snowed pretty thick and all the market traders were still there with their wares out and people still bought them. I remember we bought apples, bananas and grapes and they were really nicely chilled. I love how nothing seems to phase market traders..they went rescuing people who slipped and didn't once fall over themselves.
