England Part 5: Harlow

July 08, 2014  •  1 Comment

I spend the majority of my time in England in Harlow. This is where Shane and his family live - this is my family, too. We went to North Weald Market over the weekend. What a place! It's apparently a lot smaller now than it used to be. Markets really are the most fascinating places to me. San Antonio has a market, and I'm pretty sure farmers' markets are similar, but English markets kind of blow my mind. Honestly, you can find pretty much anything you could dream of ... whether it does or is what it is meant to do or be is another question, though! :)
Markets also present the largest challenge for me for street photography; people are very alert at markets!

I spent £17 on some olives!!! Totally got swindled there for not knowing how much a gram is. They *are* the most delicious olives in the world, though. The woman who was selling them told me she "LOOOOOOOOVES Americans!!" - if we all spend this much on her olives, I can only imagine that she does love us!

I love Harlow.

Sunday, we popped over to the Harlow Museum for the Art of the Garden Party 2. The walled garden is one of my favorite places to visit in Harlow. My favorite part was the Harlow Ballet's performance :D

This dreamflower pops up all over England (and I saw some in Paris last summer, too) ... the Fuschia! I love it.
