The Strangest Things Ever in London

I guess these occurrences shouldn´t necessarily be so strange, living in a big city like The Strangest Things Ever in LondonLondon. There are over eight million people (as of 2011 census) living here. So, there must surely be some weirdos too. Besides, we can all act strangely at some point, maybe when caught in awkward situations.

So, I thought I could start listing below some of the strangest things that I have ever happened to me or come across while in London. I don´t mean the strange clothes that we can see in Camden or the Ripley´s Museum.

Maybe, you can tell us what other weird things you have come across or done in London, Toronto, Stockholm or wherever you are from or travelled to. It´d be great adding to the list. Here we go. The Strangest Things Ever in London

  • Naked lady wrapped in bathroom towel.
    It was a sunny, but freezing day. This lady was coming a long distance from the opposite direction, and I could tell she was wearing not much appart from some trainers and a towel. She even went down the other end of a long road!
  • Twenty-somethings knitting on the tube.
    iPads are no longer in fashion, or are they?
  • Some shows.The Strangest Things Ever in London
    Where else if not London? OK, shows like the Royal Family of Strange People are staged in other cities. But, here you can find the most unusual shows more frequently. The one on the right was sooooo weirdly fun!
  • Expensive mac´n´cheese pots.
    This seems the domain of hipsters, ie, those who usually claim to work in `media´, The Strangest Things Ever in Londonsport funny taches, and wear stretch, low-slung trousers and pointy shoes. I mean, you can get it for a few pennies in the supermarket, no need to buy in the street market where deli food is even cooked in front of you (check this one out!)
    Check and get involved in Movember too!
  • Ladies wearing nothing…
    Nothing but a little dress, high-heeled sandals and no coat on at night in winter or when it is cold. I would have to drink an entire pub not to feel that cold.

    😆 You haven’t seen by brother-in-law riding his bicycle to the opera, in tuxedo, complete with bicycle clips, and wearing a bright yellow spotted bow tie?

    The strangest thing I saw in Mumbai was a lady bathing her child in a flooded ditch in the road about 1 foot away from moving cars.
