After leaving my friends in Kent I went to stay with my friend Debi in London. She’s one of those friends whom I don’t see very often, but we just pick up where we left off. Here we are aged about 7/8!
Debi took me to lots of different parts of London that I had not been to before, including The Barbican Complex, built in the architectural style known as ‘Brutalist’ and also to Islington, where I, of course, made a visit to Waterstones. This branch is situated on the site of an old Music Hall, Collins’. It’s a lovely building, although only the façade is original, the building having been destroyed by fire in 1935.
I thought Islington was a lovely part of London. I will definitely go back with Peter at some stage to explore further.
