Notting Hill Carnival


Today was our first day as true tourists in London (since arriving). We visted the famous Notting Hill Carnival — second in the world in size (first is Rio’s) with approx. 2 million attending the two day festival. The music and costumes seemed very similar to Junkanu in the Bahamas. Today was Kid’s Day and the second day is the Adults Day — all dancers in today’s carnival parade were children. We loved the Caribbean steel drums — made us think of Bermuda! We also took a walk by the Thames at sunset and ended the day with authentic Japanese food (Katsu Don) in London’s China Town near Trafalgar Square. We love London!
