Blacking in and out in a strange flat in east London
When one is half drunk he has some moments with a clear mind and some others in which his mind blacks out.
East London is the parts of London east of London proper and north of the River Thames. It’s the most cosmopolitan and multicultural part of London, and the newest too (keeping in mind, North Americans, that “new” in London means post-1700s).
A “flat” is an apartment in U.K. slang.
