  London

Last week-end was another one without coding, in London, and it was great!

On arrival on Friday evening I felt the pain of paying 4£ (5€) for on single metro trip. And if you see people who don't pay, they have a wonderful system for you to report them via sms.

On Saturday I have visited the exhibition Street & Studio: An Urban History of Photography which I strongly suggest you to visit (but hurry up, it's closing on next Sunday!).

Then we walked along the river and ended the day in a cool pub.



On Sunday we went to Notting Hill carnival which was great but I had to leave before 7pm to catch my train so I missed the end of Sunday and all Monday :(

As usual, I took too many photos, in case you are bored at work.

"On arrival on Friday evening I felt the pain of paying 4£ (5€) for on single metro trip."<br><br>Don't ever pay cash for transit in London. Get an Oyster card - they have little dispensers selling them in all the Tube stations. It's a pre-paid smart card for transit basically. The rates you get with the Oyster card are WAAAAAY lower than the cash single fare price. You can reload it at any of the tube ticket machines, or in lots of stores, and you can just keep it forever and use it whenever you're in London.
