Last week was the Notting Hill Carnival. I've heard a lot of mixed reviews about this carnival, mainly all good, but obviously with the negative stigma of the history of violence thrown in. I'd never been before so decided to head down to Notting Hill on the Sunday to see what all the fuss was about and I was pleasantly surprised.
With a lot of colour, whistle blowing, dancing, singing, drinking, laughing and food, thing was a very good day. If you've never been before I would strongly recommend checking it out. But remember to stay safe.
The carnival is so big, we never actually go to see all over it, but lucky on the way from the tube station a very nice police lady gave me a map so we managed to find the perfect place to be. With music and food not too far away and most importantly the toilets were only around the corner.
Also make sure you try some jerk chicken.. it's delicious!
