I went out to Camden to meet a friend last night. Here are a few things that happened in the five hours I was out:

A distressed-looking woman came up to me in the street and said, "Help me! Please! My fella has just beaten me up and I don't know what to do. I'm not homeless but I've just come from the hospital." She then lifted her sleeve to reveal a hospital tag around her wrist. I noticed she was badly bruised. I asked her what she needed and she said, "I just need my bus fare to get home." I gave her 40p, which was all I had in my pocket, and she gave me a look of disdain and then walked off.

A short woman looking distressed approached me, crying, and said, "I don't know if you've seen me before, but I've just been robbed of my wallet and £14. I don't know what to do." I didn't have any change and told her so. She walked off, sobbing.

Walking down the street with my friend, who is black, a man approached, gave us a flyer and said, "Two-for-one drinks tonight and we're playing black music." We took the flyer and walked off. My friend then turned to me and asked, "So what exactly is 'black music'." We went to that bar later out of curiosity and they were playing house and garage.

London is a peculiar place.
