London ~ Monday (Feb 4) Southall

We went to Southall
a South Asian residential district in West London. Indian stores line the streets of this area from Indian garments to jewelry, to Bollywood CDs & DVDs to quaint little restaurants. Mum and I were surprised that stores only opened at 11am, so we spent nearly an hour just window browsing.

We had a bite to eat at a restaurant called Chandni Chowk. If youre an avid Bollwyood follower, youll know that this term is often used in films. Chandni Chowk is actually one of the oldest and busiest markets in Delhi.

We weren
t really tempted to buy much in Southall (its not like we were seeing anything new) but I just bought a few bindis and a Bollywood CD.

After lunch, we moved into a hotel in Kings Cross with most places within a decent distance.
