LONDON - We Were At The Camden Market Fire Site Friday

This maps shows our blue canal trip to Camden Market.

This morning we woke up to the same news that you did. There was a fire this morning at the Camden Markets. Lulu likes to shop there - I generally find a bench and sit outside while she prowls through the kitsch - a word I did not even know a year back.

Friday morning we hopped a canal boat right here in Little Venice where we live. At 3 MPH it took about 30 minutes for us to get there. There is a series of locks at Camden Market right where all the shopping is. While I found a McDonalds for a nice snack - Lulu meandered through the very stores that burned down this morning. Honestly - the place is a fire hazard - and things like this are not unexpected.

In the 12 days we have been here - we have not seen a drop of rain. The humidity has hovered between 30% and 50%. This dryness adds to the possibility of fires. Of course the Muslim haters will blame this fire on them. There is a large Middle Eastern community in this area.

The area seems very safe - I would go back again today to see the damage - if we were not resting up for our 4 day trip tomorrow to Switzerland.
