Ranvijay was studying in Leeds at the time. So we ganged up and spent a chilly Christmas and New Year’s Eve together.
We visited two Christmas markets; one at the Southbank Centre near London Eye, and the other at Hyde Park called Winter Wonderland. Both al fresco markets, there was a variety of good food from Europe such as mulled wine, Bavarian beer, schnitzels, apple strudel, kangaroo and ostrich meat, different types of cheese and traditional eggnog. From Nutcracker-themed trains to snow globes to Santa Claus-shaped candles to fake powdery snow, the Christmas decorations were just astounding. If you love Christmas time as much as I do (I’m a little obsessed; you will know if you type Christmas in the ‘search box :P), witnessing the season’s festivities in London is truly memorable.
