Even if is death dark one, your flash could manage the picture very well, but worst is with a screen of camera and your eyes

Mundo Lingo - Camden _ April 2016

Photographers Point of view: Last Monday in Camden at Mundo Lingo I took some pictures (o.k. - many of them :-))) ) - you can find out more of them on my Flicker - above (just click on the picture) or on ML Facebook.  It was nice as usually - really many people were coming - which was an excellent one but for me like a photographer it was not easy - bar was so full I had to manage myself very carefully cos I was always squeeze between some people and only hardly could make one step behind or into side for reached better point of view to taking a great picture.
And second thing was - there was not lighting in half of venue in the part of bar where usually held a place Mundo Lingo - so it was really pretty tricky to take the pictures here. Fortunately I have got great and very flexible flash so it was an excellent one but be honest - in my screen on the camera sometimes was so dark I could just guess what I am taking pictures in the moment :-D. So it was really funny - great exercises for my eyes.
Finally I discovered I have had an great eyes - like a cat :-D - and I took lot of great pictures I think. So - just small tip for you who take a pictures under a little bit tricky conditions - don´t give up - always you can manage great pictures! :-D. Cos always it depend on the people they are before the camera - and in Camden on Mundo Lingo were great people as usually! :-) I am looking forward to you all today as usually at the same place and the same time ! :-)

I am too short - the bar staff oversight me!

How you can see there is lot of fun at Mundo Lingo Language Exchange every Monday (Tuesday or Wednesday:-) ). This regularly guest of ML - Viet - tried speak German. He is cheerful Vietnam (but long time living in UK) guy who is sometimes depressed by Bar staff cos he is a little bit short in height. Last time he went to the bar to buy some drink. We continued in discussion and waiting for him. But he didn´t come back quite long time (longer then is usually in the British bars - which is really record cos English queues on the bar are really... what could I say... this is the British way - waiting and making queues everywhere for everything cos the British style is be very slow, no rush in any cases... dead slow really... I think when British people come to the Europe - specially to the Germany or my original country or to USA - obviously they should stay in shock probably :-). 
But last time I really like this ´sleepy living style here´ - more sleepy style exist I think only in Italia or Spain, etc. But here you could expect that and has it reason - hot weather, siesta, etc. But UK? Oh... maybe actually people are tired by Weather as well... :-)  ) . So when Viet reached the record in ´waiting in the queue at the bar´ and come back, he said just: "The bar staff did oversight  me cos I am too short and not enough tall to be seen behind the bar." And then he started to take some exercised in German :-)

I really like Language Exchange meetups in London - my favourite of them is Mundo Lingo and maybe this is the reason why I help the organiser with a reception and sticking the flags to the people:-).
It was last Monday, evening, at the Mundo Lingo in Camden. AS usually I helped Jim, organizer ML London, with reception which means greetings the people from all over the world who are living or visiting London being happy to take a practise in English speaking and meet a new people - and British people living in London who would like to speak in foreign languages as well. 
For quick orientation who is who – we provide them flags and the people place them on their chest, native flag goes at the top, on the bottom others flag – in my case come first the Czech flag, then English and on the end German. I would like to write more but last time I am little bit short in time so I prefer making short videos. So you can watch this one and right now I am heading to the Mundo Lingo in Camden and I hope I will make another video and I will write you more as well! Have a great time and if you don´t know what you are doing this evening or on Tuesday or on Wednesday then you can come in and take some language practice :-).
