Portobello Road and Greenwich Mean Time

As luck would have it, our return to London coincided with market day on Portobello Road.  Staying with James and Billie nearby, we took to the streets on foot, joining the swelling crowds passing through Golborne Road and on to Portobello.

The previous day we had walked the foot tunnel to Greenwich, again paying a visit to the markets there, finding a rare Homemaker tea stand which we gave as a thank you gift to our friends (not to be confused with the Australian Homemaker brand).

And of course, no trip to Greenwich would be complete without walking up to the Royal Observatory and standing astride the line at longitude 0° which marks the East and West divide (we also managed to snatch a few glimpses of the new Les Misérables filmed on location at the Naval College), all topped off with a traditional English pie with mash and peas.
