Photo Friday: London's Friday Night Freakshow

Today we take a short break from Moz posts to bring you a few pics from the London Wonderground.

Open May through September at Southbank Centre, this "marvellous new festival of cabaret, circus and sideshow" was set up right behind our hotel, and we happened to catch one of the last nights. By chance, as we strolled along after dinner one eve, the Friday Night Freakshow was about to begin. Oh, what luck!

freakshow next to The Eye? yes, please!

Emceed by the salty Miss Behave, this fabulous concoction of vaudeville acts kept us well entertained into the wee hours.

No rest for the wicked

The past few weeks and the next few weeks are blurring into a heady concoction of "Careful What You Wish For." Travel, travel, and more travel... a combination of business and leisure, domestic and international, swanky and not-so-much.

I'm quickly falling behind, as usual, on posting pics and recaps, and the blog will continue to get pushed to the background as we prepare to head out to Mozambique for our Habitat trip next week. But here are a few scenes from recent trips to tide you over...

We'll be mostly off-the-grid in Moz, so further updates will have to wait until the end of October. No doubt we'll have some great pics & stories from our Africa adventures, though!

Meanwhile, this snap from a pub in Camden Town pretty much says it all...

life is beautiful!

Mind the gap: one week till London!

A week from today I'm heading to Londontown for a short business trip. It's only five days; one will be spent at a product management conference and two more are taken up by a regional eCommerce meeting. But I do have the weekend free, and Mark will also be tagging along on this trip, so we're looking for fun & offbeat recommendations. Particularly over the weekend (Sept 29 & 30). Besides the usual tourist spots, where are some good places to peoplewatch, eat, drink, or otherwise soak up some limey goodness?

C'mon travel junkies, I know you must have some treasures to share! The wackier the better. Feel free to leave a comment below or join the conversation on Twitter.
