Anyone who reads this blog frequently will be aware that whenever there’s a big public event in Camberwell, it always manages to clash with plans I’ve already made. This weekend was no exception, as a family lunch meant I had to miss Carnaval del Pueblo at Burgess Park yesterday. There are a number of photos available on Flickr, some of which are in the Camberwell SE5 group. Update: Even more photos here.
For those of us who sometimes get wrapped up in picturing our vision of a Camberwell utopia, here’s a sobering reminder that life isn’t all arts centres and decent shopping facilities.
My parents‐in‐law are in town at the moment, so if you see a middle‐aged Brazilian couple walking around, be nice to them.
