quite a coincidence to find this "café provençal" in Herne Hill to remind me of entrechaux. it's really cosy and nice although it doesn't have anything to do with la provence...

i've been trying to start packing for a few weeks but only manage to add more mess to my room. i've wasted too much time telling myself i had plenty of time to pack.

it is my turn to have a farewell party after seeing many people leave Cambridge. no camera tonight, i didn't take a single picture, but still found it difficult to enjoy myself properly and find time for a drink, just busy catching up.
just today i got an positive answer for the kennington flat! that's where my new life is going to happen.

Available rooms in an estate-looking building block on Lorrimore Rd with a friendly turkwomen as a guide. I also visited a soulless flat with no lounge shown by the polish landlady.

the "Good Shoes" concert was an occasion to catch up and to see 16 year olds moshing about being helped by a an old dirty jb and under close supervision from Madame Isa, hungry for young and fresh meat.

pre-junction drink with neil. the flying pig pub is great and suprisingly empty for a saturday fever.

this one is in kennington. not the most famous area, but well connected, in a nicely decorated appartment with a friendly guy. it's difficult to describe those places now (i.e. a few days later, as I know which one i picked) in all objectivity. the winning house will be announced soon.

it was a nice big room in an ok safe place, not particularly well connected, but facing south and overlooking a park. sharing a flat with two swedish girls didn't bias me.

that was my first real visit. in a shared flat in borough shared with 2 professional photographers. I had a crush on this place. really nice flat, really got along with the couple, room overlooking a square with full morning sun. only £900/month... they finally gave it someone else who moved on the same day. i felt cheated on, but might stay in touch with them still.

<<< - >>> 13.11.07. london house visits : a feel for elephant and castle


elephant and castle is a hub in south london where train lines are rare. its shopping center (see left) is outdated, cheap, but cool and has a massive clarks shop and a few interesting outdoor stalls where you can get fake nike shoes for 25 quid. it has also some of the finest cosy architecture (see above) where many families live together in harmony. it tooks me almost 5 minutes to walk from one end the other of this building.

my first visit. first impression: bermondsey tube station sucks and walking south sucks even more. the street where the studio is. i never managed to see as the guy stood me up.

klx and i have had the same course of life. long years in academia and now a new "real job". today was his first day and i've never seen him look like a TV presenter. blue shirt, blue eyes on skype.

it feels good to feel cosy inside an engine boat while cambridge rowers work they're ass off (in the background)

an impromptu drink with emilie.
i got this new phone HTC touch phone last week, which you may see as a strip down version of the iphone, except that i got it for free and it's small. a proper PDA with windows mobile and wifi and a shit camera (see above). the only constraint is you have to meet this guy named john every evening for about two hours. he's a very average guy.
