Balle In Barking

We spent a couple of hours at the East London Mela this evening. I thought it was my first, but I realised that I had been to a few before (long, long  ago). It was pretty good, if only for the BBC AN stage (Khiza, Ams, Metz, Trix and the star of the show, Raghev swoon).

The rest of it was standard affair, with rides and food stalls. The people were ok and relatively well behaved albeit replete with rudies etc, and a couple of us were happy to keep our eyes busy with crowd surfing.

I did notice that almost everyone my age had kids in tow, though. Oldest single person at the mela? Possibly.
