PRADE Crosses The Pond

PRADE officially takes off for England later today - and will be incommunicado until the middle of next week.

After a brief stop in London to check out a few museums and a few out-of-the-way sneaker stores, I'll be heading to the Channel Island of Jersey.

No, not New Jersey - home of smokestacks, interstates and big hair.

My friend from NJ thinks wildlife means squirrels and pigeons

the original Jersey, a small British island off the coast of France - where Grandma PRADE lives along with the rest of the fam (uncle, aunt and cousins). Jersey is not only home to the Jersey cow, but the island also hosts stunning medieval castles and a dramatic coastline. It also boasts Jersey Zoo, one of the finest zoos in the world - and the site of a 1986 incident in which a silverback gorilla named Jambo saved the life of a little boy who fell into the gorilla enclosure.

Jersey on a sunny day (rare but stunning!)

This brief hiatus is a great time to explore the PRADE archive for any stories you may have missed before discovering the site. When PRADE returns look for brand new reviews of some London sneaker stores, my take on the Tate Modern museum, and even the chance of a potential Queen spotting report.
