…the one time of year the most charming neighborhood ever turns in to a third-world country.

This is down the street from my flat.  There really isn’t booths and stuff like we would define a “carnival”…it was more food vendors and walking around between street DJs.

If you look up Notting Hill real estate, you’ll notice (after doing the pounds to dollars conversion) that the houses average $3 million.  This trash was mild compared to some of the other houses.  I can’t imagine walking outside my beautiful historical house to see half-eaten take out on my porch.  And in my rose bushes.

Looking out my 3rd story window…the line-mob for the bathrooms.
