"I will do my best. It's 'Diagon Alley'?"

"Yes. It will take you the Leaky Cauldron; it's the pub at the entrance to the Alley." He gets his own packet and demonstrates, vanishing into the flames with a whooshing noise.

Cam follows. He emerges into the Leaky Cauldron in a tumble, then gets up and dusts himself off.

"You're hardly the first to fall over your first time. The Alley's this way." Lupin leads Cam to the back door of the pub, which leads to a small dingy space with brick walls on all sides, and taps a specific brick with his wand. It, and then the surrounding ones for several iterations, spin in place and slide into the gaps thus produced until the wall has assembled an archway into itself. Beyond is a bustling street, full of shops selling everything from broomsticks to beetles and variously dressed people shopping, gossiping, arguing, haggling, and generally enjoying themselves.

"Gosh! There is sure an aesthetic here. Wish my camera would work, but not enough to wreck twelve more trying to figure out one that's low tech enough."

"What makes you think it wouldn't? I thought it was only Hogwarts that had that sort of problem."

"Is it? Maybe it's worth a try." He makes his computer in an inside pocket of his trenchcoat, pulls it out, tries turning it on.

It takes a bit longer than it should to boot up, but then it runs alright.

How odd. Cam takes photos. Does everything show up in the photos?

Yup! If, during this process, he looks at the skyline, he might notice that he can't see any more distant buildings over the ones immediately around him, despite the fact that they shouldn't be tall enough to block out the rest of London completely.

Huh. Is there any obvious way to get a higher vantage point short of breaking out the wings?
