Jenny was feeling unwell when we arrived in London and a trip to a clinic in Paddington Station above Boots resolved the problem to everyone's relief.
After a coffee in the station we took a taxi to Camden Lock, refreshed our 'phone with an Orange SIM card so that we could access the web and found a small Japanese restaurant to have some lunch. With all of those chores out of the way we were finally able to explore the Camden Markets.
The street from the station to the bridge over the canal was packed with people and souvenir shops full of absolute rubbish. Everything had a Union Jack printed on it somewhere and it's difficult to know who would buy such absolute crap.
Further on when we got to canal it was even more crowded but there were small enclaves of hand crafted artifacts amongst the many food stalls. We must have stood out amongst the crowds since most were young, dressed in outrageous outfits whilst we looked so conservative.
