    A lot of pictures, here!

    Two days before the fayre, me & JK outside St Paul's Cathedral


    Typical London Underground scene

    Pre-event dinner, rubbish photo - @Faizal_p , Rahul (unsure if he's a member here) and @Nadeem pictured, headless


    The set up begins! pictured: @Faizal_p, @Faheem, @F4R1d0uX and @RisingPhoenix


    The entrance!


    Hung a banner from the window, bit obscured by the graffiti though (the entire area of Shoreditch is graffiti'd, but not in a vandalised type of way). It's pretty cool!
    pictured: @RisingPhoenix @Faheem @hasans1412 @Nadeem and @Faizal_p


    ....And the event is underway! 3 pictures showing it from different perspectives, it started off quite busy! Too many people to tag :(

    Some wood from Al Hashimi, beads that @F4R1d0uX has, big bag of wood from Imperial Oud

    Imperial Oud and Rising Phoenix' set up

    Out for a meal to a Brazilian place that @Nadeem loves (but don't tell his wife!)


    Day 2 - @Nadeem and Hahsimi's set up being photographed, Rahul brought a cameraman along


    @Nadeem decanting some thick-ass oil. It was interesting to watch :)


    Chatting away. Please note that @RisingPhoenix is not sitting on this bottle

    Al Hashimi table after Nadeem organised it a bit


    Sultan Pasha popped by! Shiny Sproaty head


    yes that is a parrot in the middle of London


    At Bloom Perfumery in Mayfair where @RisingPhoenix filmed a few videos with the owner. Tried this Secretions Magnifique (look it up!) scent which is apparently revolting but I really liked it! Had awesome food in Chinatown

    oh look! There's people up there!


    ....311 steps later...


    and a walk back down!


    Met up with Sultan Pasha and Nadeem again


    also with 3 friends of mine (non ouddicts) and went out for food. Post-food, Sultan was swiping everyone with everything under the sun

    Later in the week, JK and I met up with @Shabby and spent the day at his work in a frankincense shop and then wandering London. JK's acupuncture and Chinese Medicine training was being utilised to crack my back and neck all week, and Shabby and his work colleague received the same treatment!

    All in all, a great week was had :D

    Thanks @Sproaty these look great. The best bit about these get togethers is to be able to talk with someone in detail about Oud. people not looking for something sweet and generic, who appreciate the effort and take the time to understand just what it takes to get these oils produced. Be good to see you in NY
