Did anybody see the parade on sunday, or go to the festival in Burgesss park.?

It was a riot of colour and music.

Roll on next year!

I watched the parade go past - great music from all parts of South America that gets into the body and gets it moving [in a subtle, unostentatious way of course because I'm British]. I'm not sure if this was the first such parade - it seemed rather short, but if it's repeated next year it can only get better and I might make more of a complete fool of myself dancing in the street.

Yes we were both hanging over our terrace watching the parade (all SE1 people need to watch things from our terrace) and we went to the shindig which was AMAZING, I had no idea it was such a huge affair, 80,000 people apparenty. Woderful music and stalls and food (the Pofessor was gutted that we'd already had lunch)>>>>
