Covent Garden Market



It is a place I always like to come every time I visit London.



In the open piazza jugglers, mime artists, variety acts and musicians delight and amaze thousands of people who come here to visit the gardens, do their shopping, eat and entertain themselves.



Several arcades of fashionable boutiques, cafes, arts and crafts are comprised in the large glass covered building.

I have read that it is the only area of London licensed for street entertainmen, so street entertainers are found on both sides of the street.



Performers from around the world come to perform in this area, and different shows take place on a daily basis. The piazza has an Italian style.



The Royal Opera House is found here as well.







HAVING LUNCH AND GET SOME REST



It is already late afternoon, and we set off at 10 am this morning.

It is about 3.30 and we were walking all this time.

Although tired I can admit, I have enjoyed every moment of this walk today.

Maro and Paschalis are expecting us for dinner tonight at their home, so after lunch we have to get the the bus and get to the hotel.



Paschalis comes and drives us home for dinner, and Maro has prepared a lovely dinner for us. I have a stomach ache and I am not feeling well in the beginning.

Maro makes some herb tea for me, and luckily I feel much better.  I managed to eat in the end, and I was well by the time we left.
