Today is all
about shopping. We wanted to have some
shopping the moment we stepped on British soil but our tight schedule forbade
us. Our itinerary for this day should
have been to visit Hyde Park, Harrods and join a Sandeman’s free tour but never
mind that. We’ve got some unfinished
business with Oxford Street! This busy
and chaotic shopping street is lined with flagship stores from low to high end
brands. There‘s something for everyone. They
have H&M, Topman/Topshop, M&S, Debenhams, Urban Outfitters, River
Island, New Look, Next, Bershka, Selfridges, Pull and Bear, Primark, the list
could go on.
This place is full of life. Imagine this: people rushing into their favorite stores, girls smiling from ear to ear while carrying hundreds of shopping bags, and locals snubbing the tourists that blocks the entire pavement to get their pictures taken with the countless double decker bus. To just sit on a café and watch these all unfold is entertaining. The vibrant atmosphere will get you. This street is not for the faint hearted. Shoppers show their true colors when put under adverse circumstances. They would kill for the last pair of shoes or the last size of shirt. It’s a jungle out there. Be warned.
