Walking the streets of London

Walking the streets of London

Just spent a delightful few hours thumping the byways and alleyways of London town.

I had a meeting near the Barbican and decided to take the rest of the day off.

First, I checked out the fabulous Museum of London and wandered about as chuffed as Billy McChuffo amongst the recreated street of Victorian shopfronts.

With my head suitably filled with culture, I decided to breath in London’s living history with an invigorating stroll into the West End, finally ending up with a frothy cup of the finest coffee in the Photographer’s Gallery.

I got into a conversation with the venerable Ivor Cutler (poet/writer/musician/all-round-interesting-bloke) who told me that I’d managed to cheer him up (he’d bust up with his woman and seemed quite down at heel).

Right, I’ve finished my coffee so it’s time to head home. Let’s hope that this fancy new PDA blogging thing works as I rather like being able to update my blog in a café!
