In London

Rebecca and I in Green Park shortly after (accidentally) becoming engulfed
in the madhouse that is the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace.

Rebecca Stead and I both have terrible senses of direction (as I wrote about once in a previous post – one of my favorite posts, actually). And when we get together, our terrible senses of direction collide and explode into an utter inability to get anywhere at all. In a place like London, maps are comical rather than helpful (just look at one and maybe you'll understand why)… Last night we were finding one of our maps particularly incomprehensible and Rebecca told me I should hurl it into the nearest pit. Ha!

Here are a few London scenes in no particular order.

Near Covent Garden.

Vera Wang wedding dresses.

Lamps in a shop window.

Perhaps a bar inside this stained-glass window?

In Neal's Yard.



At Fortnum & Mason on Piccadilly, the shrubbery is shaped like a teacup :-)

Inside, I fell in love with these mugs, but knew better than to try to travel with them.

The London skyline has got SO MANY cranes right now!
There's so much construction going on.
