London: A Night on the Town

Food, Lifestyle, Music
    Nighttime Adventures For many, night time is when they go to sleep, but for others, it’s when they come alive. London is a city, so it never truly sleeps. Eager adventurers can find all sorts of places to go, things to do, and people to see in London on a night on the town. All it takes is some curiosity. Hungry? London offers every style of cuisine from mouth-watering Vietnamese street food to succulently elegant French brasseries. No matter how picky the eater, everyone will find something they’ll like.

Spectacles, high waisted trousers and a copy of Fantastic Four #481. Seen in a movie, perhaps, but this archaic representation of gamers isn’t accurate anymore. Reporter: Ryan Yeo | Sub-Editor: Emre Gunes “I remember my stepdad asking me once when I’d grow out of games. I rebutted: do you grow out of books? Do you grow out of films?

Reporter and Photographer: Visnja Marjanovic | Subeditor: Ivelina Nikolova “Okay, go get it.” “No, you’re the older one, you do it!” “Yes, I am the older one, so I am telling you to do it.” I sighed. Having a cool older sister by your side in Amsterdam, one would think she’d be the one providing the drugs. Prior to my trip, my friend from the Netherlands did try to clarify the rocket science behind the drugs law, but the multiple contradictions left me even more confused.
