Part of the borough of Wandsworth Tooting Broadway is full diversity and people you can take pictures ever and ever again. Am missing it! There are not fancy shops or pubs there, its more the real London – without being to much of East London.
If you’re looking for places to live in London Elephant & Castle should not be on your list. Or if you’re local you’d only say the elephant. Or you like the wired things then go to the elephant & castle pub.
Anyway it seems like a “failed utopia” – council houses just never work for nobody. In this case the concept behind the construction of the estate was of a modern living environment. The neo-brutalist architectural aesthetic was one of tall, concrete blocks dwarfing smaller blocks, surrounding central communal gardens. The architect’s concept was to link all areas of the estate via concrete bridges, so there was no need for residents to walk on pavements or along roads. But the estate was once a popular place to live, the flats being thought light and spacious, but the estate later developed a reputation for crime, poverty and dilapidation. Residents complained about constant noise, crime and threats of violence. The sheer scale of many of the blocks also meant there was little sense of community.
Time difference +100,000,000,000,000 hours – hence clear effects of jet lag here.
Seen at Venice Beach, California.
For getting over jet lag we recommend:
There are not so many Bavarian beer houses in London – although German beer is available in most of the pubs. Checking a London restaurant guide you might find maybe 3-4 proper German restaurants in London (the rest is rubbish bratwurst fake, mind you there’s a new one in Soho where I had Bratwurst Nachos the other day).
This picture was taken at the Great British Beer Festival held at Earls Court in London. It’s a shame there are no Oktoberfest costumes (dirndl dress) to see – this would have make me feel 100% like being in a Bavarian beer garden.
What does sugar do to children? What’s sugar hyperactivity? What’s a normal sugar levels for children? – I don’t know.
What I do know is when one eats carbohydrates (sugars), the blood sugar rises and our bodies release insulin. For children who are sugar sensitive, this careful balance of food and fuel is disrupted. Blood sugar rises more quickly and reaches higher levels than normal. As result, a greater amount of insulin is released, and sugar is absorbed more quickly into the cells. This creates that “sugar high”. And it subsequently creates a crash—defined by feelings of exhaustion, spaciness, and irritability.
Sometimes in Colombia you come across signs of its violent past at common places.
There are now plenty of paramilitary groups in colombia, all a threat to human rights in Colombia. Amongst the most influential one is Auc Colombia.
Colombian paramilitary violence is overwhelmingly targeted towards peasants, unionists, teachers, human rights workers, journalists and leftist political activists.
The downfall of the Medellín and Calí cartels in the 1990s created an opening for paramilitary groups, which controlled northern Colombia (the key transnational smuggling route), to take over the international cocaine trade.
In 2001 Colombian government sources estimated that at least 40% of all cocaine exports from Colombia were controlled by far-right paramilitary groups, while only 2.5% were controlled by the FARC.
