LONDON – Ramen Noodles & Kitschy Bars

We wake up in a bright room after this rainy Saturday night. The windows are cold from the dew and the difference in temperature make them fog up. I can here your flatmates moving around in the kitchen below. There has been some fashion crisis at one of their photoshoots and the dramatic gossiping is entertaining even from here. You pretend to be sleeping and turning around you wrap your arms around my waist, slipping a few fingers under my shirt and up my ribs. The hint of a smile on your lips gives you away though and I bury you under the duvet and locks of my hair. Verden-Brunch We share a shower and I’m about to cry as I forget that the damn boiler is broken and get sprayed with icy water. Fuck you London I hate you I hate you. Even though it’s not true. You cover me in towels and your warm skin prickles as it touches mine, but you don’t even seem to mind. We get dressed to a new track you’ve found a few days earlier. Then you bring me up to a new spot up the road that you’ve just discovered called Verden. You get slightly embarrassed by the fact that we are the only couple in there who are not parents or heavily pregnant. It wasn’t this many young families in here last time I promise. I just love how uncomfortable you get by these things, scared that I will misinterpret this as hints. Daniel,-Verden-London We order spicy chorizo and poached eggs on avocado. The orange juice comes in fancy glasses and the waiter can probably tell that I’m actually skint but in London we all play along in those rare moments of luxury. Daniel,-Shoreditch-March-2015 The rain falls like a soft mist over East London as we catch the bus down to Shoreditch. It will never bother me this rain, unlike so many others in this town and you still find it amusing. I have a folder on my laptop with all the rain related jokes and memes you’ve sent me and it’s now as heavy as the clouds above. Rivington-Street,-LondonDaniel,-Rechchurch-Street-London We check out trendy boutiques and buy coffee table books. The bracelet you gave me for Christmas broke and you are talking to some lady in the shop about fixing it. I’m not superstitious really, but it doesn’t feel like a good sign that the jewellery you give me keep on breaking. We end up returning it because what’s the point of having a jinxed bracelet instead of cash. Daniels,-Mare-Street,-London-2015 At Redchurch Street we meet up with Stenberg for a coffee. He tells us about how he’s quit his job and is going travelling in Japan for months. Apparently they have waterfalls and tropical mountains there too. I’m deadly jealous as I’ve still never been able to make my cherry blossom and sushi dream come true. Tonkotsu-Ramen,-Mare-Street-London We get inspired by our conversation and decide to head up to Mare Street and Tonkotsu Ramen & Bar. Daniel,-Tonkotsu-London It’s lovely of course, but I think my being a student doesn’t really make me too excited paying £12 for ramen when I eat it too often for only 40p. But the Asian beers are incredible and the company alike. A tad tipsy and exhausted by the food we say bye and head back to your flat. Ridley-Road-Market-Bar,-Dalston At home we have a preparty just me and you playing tracks too loud on the laptop and drinking beer in your bed. The raindrops patters the windows and I’m almost hoping that we can cancel our plans and not leave this nook. You try on a new jacket you’ve bought and I almost don’t want you to wear it because I know girls will hit on you even more than they already do. At nine we head over to Ridley Road Market Bar. Ridley-Road-Market-Bar,-London Inside it is a tropical kitsch explosion with beer cans for £3 and pints of mojito for £5. Karl-Anders,-Ridley-Road It’s not long before this man shows up with his eight mates! Those of you who have followed me for a few years probably remember my tattooed hunk of a friends Karl-Anders that I used to take me on all kinds of bad adventures where we never went home before 8am. He was the one who gave me my Deathly Hallow tattoo on a drunken night back in 2012 and saved me when my male friend got so angry that he punched me in the face. Ridley-Road It pinches my heart to be able to hang out with him again as we haven’t really done that since he moved to Gothenburg. We talk about fallen friendships and ridiculous after parties, how destructive London can be and how easy it is to drown especially if you are trying to stay afloat on friends who can’t even swim. Kajsa,-Mikey,-Ridley-Road-Market-Bar More of my mates fall in through the glowing lights and we buy cans and dance among the crowd. Boys find girls in short suede skirts to make out with and I spin around to the early 2000s rnb tunes. IMG_2942 You grab my wrist by the bar and we share a can. The fairy lights dye my hair in various colours and then we dance until they turn the lights on.   Linn

  • Another poetic and inspiring glimpse of love and London at night. Leaves me with a smile 🙂 I’m just on the DLR home from another night on those familiar cobblestone streets… I love how you write in present tense, I’ve never used that style much but I’m tempted to try – for certain tales it’s just the most appropriate, isn’t it. Definitely for your life stories anyway. So engaging. <3

  • Ahh blir så tagen av dina inlägg Linn! Ang London, känns det som att du är helrätt att fråga: I vilken del skulle du rekommendera att bo i? (hört Brixton ska vara nice..) Vad för typ av jobb är bäst att söka för att ändå kunna tjäna lite pengar men även få ett nice kontaktnät? Xx

      vad fint!! tack! jag gillar lower clapton och hackney downs väldigt mycket, massa cafeer och barer och marknader runt omkring. det är billigare i södra (dock inte i brixton) men finns inte lika mycket att göra på dagtid. ang jobb så antar jag att du inte har uniutbildning och då för kontaktnät skulle jag fan säga barjobb, cafe eller någon ~trendig~ butik som aesop, opening ceremony, rokit vintage etc för där jobbar en hög unga roliga människor! dock tjänar du piss. för att tjäna pengar hade jag sagt receptionist eller nanny! men om du kommer på var man kan göra både utan utbildning plzz let me know! <3
