In search of a new eBay purchase Jim and I headed north of the river.
After quite a bit of getting lost and calling the seller we finally arrived in what turned out to be the middle of Forest Gate. (just off Green Street)
I have never been to that part of London before and I have to say... wow. It was like being in a different country... some mad cross between the Middle East, South Asia and the Caribbean.
I felt a bit sad for the folks living there, hanging around in their little cultural niche. It's a shame really... but hey great if you want to have a curry, explore the amazing "Veg., Non Veg. Restaurant" (whatever that is) or just experience a little bit of a different culture without the expensive flights.
