My good friend Finn was over from Norway recently, and we met up in London. We wandered from my house, up past Abbey Road to Hampstead Heath then Highgate for the cemetery.

Fame beckons for young Finn
Finn is already a famous rockstar in Norway after being randomly chosen at Øya Festival in Oslo by Devendra Banhart to come up on stage and perform solo! Here's a video of it.
Future album cover?
One of those famous London places that I've never been to in the 12 years or so I've lived here! Just shows you how much of London there is to get through!

There are of course many famous graves - the ones I was interested in were the famous Karl Marx one, and Douglas Adams, which we came to first.

Around Marx there were all sorts of other leftie gravestones, which then progressed on to a anti-establishment journalism section - I came across Paul Foot, the investigative journalist who worked for Private Eye.
Finally we head up to the Spaniard's Inn at the top of the Heath, dating from 1585, but more importantly serving some excellent beers and with a large and quiet (at this time) beer garden.
