Inside & Pictures of the Arsenal Emirates Stadium

Having been to a couple of football stadiums around the UK, I have to say that the Emirates Stadium beats all the others in terms of atmosphere. Even with a largely touristy crowd that night, the songs were in full flow, the chanting continuous. Those Gunners really know how to be the 12th man on the pitch! The modern seats were cushioned and much comfier than the hard plastic ones in some of their rivals (*cough* Chelsea *cough*), and the leg room was enough to fit an eight foot giant if needed.

A Typical Saturday out in London

Looking for inspiration on what to do on a sunny Saturday in London? The one thing about London that still surprises me after 5 years of living here is that there are still things to do, even after one has visited all the tourist places and done all the things that one “must” do while in London. Yesterday, I had set out to explore what London had to offer off the beaten path on a Saturday afternoon.

You know where the tourist hotspots are as well as where teenage expatriate daughters hang out by looking at where Snog have their stores; South Kensington, Brewer Street, and Westfield.

Borough Market gets new raw foods extension

Fans of Borough Market will be excited to know that a new-ish extension is opening up this Thursday, 3rd September 2009. The Jubilee Market, which is the name used to describe the part of Borough Market that sells raw fruits and vegetables, will get a new makeover complete with a new transparent roof similar to the one used for The Eden Project in Cornwall. Essentially, it will mean that the traders who used to be out in the open air will not be at the mercy of the weather anymore, and in addition this redevelopment will create some extra space to alleviate the overcrowding on Saturdays.
