Stokey Festival

Yesterday was a very hot day in London at about 26c, Amir was with me and Aida went shopping with mum, so when a friend suggested to meet at a park in London where they were holding their annual festival, I said yes and went over.
It is the Stokenewington Summer Festival, it consists mainly of few tents where live music is played, many eateries from around the world and some fun places for the kids. as it was a hot day, the place was heaving with people enjoying the hot weather, many were just sunbathing, even though there were bars serving alcohol and many had brought their own, almost everyone was well behaved and no trouble at all, I saw the police confiscate small packages from few people which I am assuming were drugs!
The main theme of this festival is the environment and how to be Eco friendly, well I am all for that, I think it is good to make people aware of such important issues, saying that, I felt the festival took it a bit too much, in fact to the point that I wanted to harm the environment just to annoy them, joking :o)
There were few kids rides that were manually operated (how boring) to save electricity, not many kids wanted to play on them, of course there was the obligatory foreign music from Asia ans South America which you always get at Eco friendly events, even rubbish bins were provided for every type of litter, bins for paper, bins for plastic and so on, too much political correctness in one day.

This area in north London is famous for its middle class people that like to pretend they are working class, so often you see many of them dressed in awful clothes bought from second class shops, they even dress their children in old clothes that do not look cheap, just bad and most kids have wooden bicycles because they are good for the environment, God help me, that is so annoying.

Anyway here is some pictures I took there and please take notice of Amir's funky shirt, it a Marvel shirt with all the usual heroes, Spiderman, Iron Man, Fantastic Four and the rest... I thought he looked cool, it was a good bargain at £4 and no it wasn't bought secondhand, lol :o)




Spanish Paella, Yum! we didn't buy any food there since it was very expensive and you have to sit on the grass to eat, to give you an example: cheese burger was selling for £4.50, usually it costs about £1.20!

French Crepe

another music tent


Re-cycling bins

Big BBQ!


Indian & Chinese


Moroccan Tagine stand, the food looked good, the staff were happy that I took their pictures

----------------------------------

After we left the park, we walked to a Turkish restaurant (big Turkish community in this area) and ate Pide & Lahmacun, very nice.

As we left we saw a Turkish couple leave the hairdressers, there was a Limousine waiting for them outside the shop but they decided to walk up the road to show off a bit, typical Middle Eastern behaviour :o)

Good luck to them

Salam Anglo-Libyan,

Overall sounds like a really fun day. LOL@wanting to hurt the environment due to things going extreme. Isn't that always the case? Once someone goes to far with something our automatic reaction is to balance it out. :-)

Good deal on Amir's shirt---looking cool as always. Can't believe a hamburger would have cost more than his shirt though, that seems silly.

What's the deal with women wearing shirts and their bra straps hanging out? You cannot tell me that don't know their are hanging out of their shirts looking stupid. Ugh!

I also don't understand the wedding party just walking up and down the street. Were they lost? Were they killing time? Hand they been sitting too long and needed to stretch their legs before getting back in the limo? All very perplexing to me.

However, I just love going to funky things like these to watch people and hopefully hear good music. Glad you guys had a good day.

Salamat Al,

Good you had bonding time with Amir,for these are the times he will connect to in later years InshaAllah.

Having fun is what life is all about. When one is in the dumps not only does he lessen his days but makes everyone surrounding him /her miserable...

You should be thinking about having a guy to guy talk with Amir soon InshAllah ,gothcha !;)

Parenting is so much fun for its a never ending story with lovable headaches and stress to remember for a lifetime !

Peace
