Lost among the subway crowds, I try to catch your eye
|Yesterday we went to London! It was very exciting. Since I was last in our nation's Capital they have built an enormous whirly-gig called the London Eye, the Millennium Bridge and a great glass Gherkin, hopefully part of a growing trend to promote healthy-eating through architecture.|
I had been invited to a party that we didn't expect to be able to attend before my folks very generously volunteered give us a lift in. [...] was concerned that they would have nothing to do while we were at this party.
"It is a Sunday," he said, "It's not as if any of the shops or tourist attractions will be open."
He was rather shocked at the scenes in Oxford Street and Regents Street on the way home. To be honest, I was rather shocked as soon as we got into London at the sheer volume of people, I mean so many people. I saw more faces in one day yesterday than I have seen in the last five years put together. Also, there was a strong sense that most of the buildings in central London have been built for people three feet taller than me. Everything is so grand and so very big. But the Christmas Lights were fantastic and London does have a certain romance.
We had a great time, it was the busiest day in absolutely ages and we met some lovely people. Today I shall sleep.
Just a little reminder that today is the deadline for submitting any posts to the 4th Disability Carnival, which I will post here on Thursday.
