Hi, I prefer to go to department stores beacause they're open until 9 p.m. So I have time to look for and buy something. Many of department stores are open on Sundays and it's another important point for me. I don't go to the local market because it's on Thursday/Wednesday while I'm working. When I went to London I liked Covent Garden and Oxford Street. They'are wonderful. Covent Garden is very particular with its buskers, bars and shops.

I'm the king of shopping if i have money. In my country we have a big market called madina. It's the bigest market in our country. It Can be very busy and crowded sometime. Particularly to the festival approch such as chrismas and the muslim's festivals. At those times i hate going there. To avoid the crowd and bumping into people like Carolina and Emely did into the sale last times, i Can go there do my shoping two weeks before each festivals.

I'm crazy about shipping I spend almost all of my time shopping...I do all my shopping in the mall I think malls are the best because you can do some many things there not just shopping you can entertain for example you can listen to music while you are shopping you feel like an artist...about going shopping in London I think I'd like to go shopping in the Oxford Street they say it's really cool I have a friend who went there and she said it was lovely.

Hi every one
In my city there was very good street shops but now a days the shopping centres grows like mushrooms and the tradicional shops are dying . So we have the same brands everywhere.
I enjoyed this episode because I usually go to London twice a year and so I know all the places that were mentioned.
In London I like go shopping in the área of Convent Garden and Regent Street. I don't like Oxford Street because it was usually crowded. I didn't see yet the Christmas light but I love it ... may be this year, who Knows!
Have a good time
