{Carnival}


On Monday we practically skipped along to Notting Hill Carnival, so happy were we to have the day off work. We were feeling jubilant and in the mood for a party, and Notting Hill certainly didn't disappoint. It seemed the whole of London was out on the streets - dancing, drinking... and some more dancing. Having stocked up on Red Stripe (Jamaican beer, the only kind to drink at Carnival) and covered ourselves (and then some) in glitter, we dived straight into the parade. 



Our views of the costumes, feathers and booties were pretty enviable, but I think these guys really trumped us with their spot. They could watch thousands of revellers snaking their way around the streets of Notting Hill, all from the comfort of their own home (or just outside it).











I don't know if it was the Red Stripe or the heat from the sun, but everyone was getting pretty intimate. Some took it to a new level though...






One of the things that impressed me most was how relaxed and friendly the many policeman were. A couple even let us try on their policeman hats for a photo, and kindly warned us how sweaty the insides were... whilst we had them on. Delicious. 


If you haven't checked out this dance-off between three policeman at Notting Hill this year, make sure you do so now! You'll be lining up to join them next year.
