I got one answer as I walked back for the train. .. I walked through a street festival. What a variety of faces of different races and family fun. I watched mothers watching their children bungee/trampolining, heard rap music, heard a man singing a song based on "Love music, hate racism".
Heard a group play great Irish music,
Bought a rice dish from an Indian stall to eat on the train.
Bought a fish cake (was it chillie, hot, hot!) from some Jamaican looking ladies. A real community event I was glad to share in. Thank you.
