I wrote in my travel log a few days ago that I was originally unsure about my location, an area my friends and I have categorized as "business grunge": business by day, grungy and ____ (insert your feeling of the area) at night. All of the shops, sizable (not express) markets, and Vodafone stores are north apparently...If you're looking for posh crowds, go north of the river.
However if I were to describe my area in three words: low-key, sensible, and photogenic. I'm not a true Londoner (obviously); I have a lot to learn in only 6 months, but from my short time here thus far, there seems to be a certain chill/emptiness/abandonment/eeriness to Southwark...
Do you get why we call it "business grunge" ? It get's a pinch quite after work hours in the back streets. That's why we walk on The Cut, where this picture was taken.
I'm exactly where I need to be.
