Brick Lane

Had a ball with two amazing women - Rebekah Davies and Hannah Curwood.  Both musicians, whom you can find online respectively here, and here.  Brick Lane is synonymous with curry, migrants and delivers one of London's most interesting heatbeats.  It also finds its way into the story of Jack the Ripper, who plied his trade in the streets nearby. Rebekah's boyfriend Roger, an East Londoner by birth himself, filled us in on the early industry, culture and happenings on the streets as they once were.  We bid Bek a fond bon voyage back to the land of the long white cloud.  I'm going to miss her dancing in the streets!
