Photo sneak peak
Riding the Tube
Just a random theatre I thought looked pretty! I love architecture and seeing the old buildings always fills me with awe. I wish that we aspired to better architecture in our own time. Don't get me wrong, I know that we do have some great stuff now, but the attention to aesthetic detail just isn't the same in our generation of architectural design.
Out for dinner with the family. We went for Mexican, which I have to say was pleasantly surprising because it was much better than the last time I had anything Mexican in London. In fact, I have to say that vegetarian fare in general has gotten much better in the past 5 years. Even pubs are better at it!
I thought it was interesting how every time I turned around I was buying food that donated a part of their profits to some NGO or another. I was surprised and pleased and have to admit that while it might be gimmicky it still makes a difference and I wish that more local businesses would do the same here!
The view at night, around the corner from where I was staying. We were in an area that is much more modern and it felt a lot like Vancouver. Odd, but true. I can't help but be struck by the juxtaposition of old and new in the city, and just how out of place the new feels when it's ALL new. But as you can see, it's also lovely, taken on it's own.
