Camden Lock Market

The Camden Lock market in London transports you directly into an exotic place existing in the tales of the Arabian nights. The market runs along the canals and was packed to the brim with people. It has an EXCELLENT street food market serving food from all over the world. I saw food from Malaysia, Peru, India, France, Middle East, China, Ethiopia and the Caribbeans. There were also stalls dedicated to chocolates, cakes and even the octopus, where they had a huge octopus displayed in the centre of a table and were cutting off parts to serve to gleeful customers. You do not walk here but move forward automatically due to the crowds. Wandering through the market, I realised that I was too timid when it comes to food – it is time to be more adventurous.
