I spent the day in Shepherd’s Bush on Saturday. Not what I expected to do but A. thought that she and her buddy were going to go off to West London alone without supervision to a mall that none of us have been to to meet a friend from camp. After reaching our destination, I walked around and found that the people that live in Shepherd’s Bush probably don’t shop in the new mall which has all of the top designers and a champagne bar in the middle. Here are some pics that show both sides of the area. The economy looks alive and well in Westfield Centre.
A funny, my nephews love the clothing store Hollister. I’ve only been in the store in the U.S. once after my sister-in-law told me I must experience it. The music is loud and it’s dark with random spotlights, like a nightclub. We are obviously not the target audience. Having that image in my mind, I thought it was funny to see the Hollister store (yes, they’ve gone global) with a velvet rope and a lengthy line outside as kids queued up to get in.
