If at first you don't succeed, please leave a message after the tone.

I took a leap of faith and dived in the wealth of culture and diversity offered by Camden Town, an area that often holds a tainted appearance. Of course, such areas often hold hidden beauty, but the beauty here was in plain sight!
As at first, when you exit the station, you find yourself surrounded by bustling people, busy to get on with their day. "Well, this is rather normal" you think to yourself, until you stop to look at who these people are and what they look like. Not men in suits headed for their office block, but free spirits out and about, doing what they please even on a weekday. You walk along the highstreet and see shops, not chain stores; a mark of Camden's individuality. The market place, a feature pre-eminent in many places seems to have a different feel about it, a certain freedom unattainable when in other busy urban landscapes.
Landscape is the perfect word to describe this place, take a trip down the busy side roads and you'll see the Chinese offering food in one section, with Pakistani's selling fur in another and so on, with the music within each blending so seamlessly together as you float through that it feels as if you've dreamt your way in to an urban wonderland
