Veni. Vidi.

I got bored and went home. Westfield, Stratford. It's just shops. Shops, shops and more shops. Shops like you can see anywhere in the world. Under a roof without weather. Why on earth are people excited about it? Sure, it's a good thing for East London - everyone else has these shops, why shouldn't we - but there's nothing new here.

Same here, it's getting quite full of shops. And most of them close after a month or two. Too many shops, too few consumers. :)

Veni, vidi, which way to the exit?

That works better if your high school Latin teacher taught the Classical pronunciation of W for V.

Sad to see that the blanding of America is becoming the blanding of the world. When we have malls in Antarctica we shall know that the end is near.

You're right, it's just the well-known chains for more shopping madness, but I do like that there are some good quality shops nearby now - and a bookshop soon. I also like your photo.

I'm all lost in the supermarket, can no longer shop happily...

I agree with you but I can see how it would be good for some people. Mums with small kids would probably like it as you can stay out of the rain or cold.
