notting hill carnival.

2 Sep

each august bank holiday, the very posh notting hill neighborhood in west london hosts the notting hill carnival–a two-day celebration of caribbean culture. complete with jerk chicken & plantains, red stripe beer, steel drum bands, and a banksy street art spotting. this event had a sampling of just about every type of londoner you can find.

i went with a few new friends last weekend and it was an incredibly vibrant and eclectic. i really felt like i was experiencing life as a londoner. here are some shots from the day–mostly of the scenic notting hill neighborhood.

admittedly, i was busy enjoying red stripe and plantains.

thank you to the wonderful new friends who invited me to tag along with them to this event!
