London

I went to London last month for work and didn't take my camera. I'm a little sad about that as London is my favorite big city, but there simply wasn't room in my luggage, or all that much free time for taking photos. But I got a few with my phone on the way in and after dinner one night on a little walk around.



The Crown and Sceptre. Nice place to get a pint. Pubs in England are either tied houses (owned by brewers and serve only that brewers' brands) or free houses. Although this is a tied house which can be limiting in terms of brands, the London Pride was rather good.



Met up with a colleague who relocated to London at this gastro-pub. He told me it was a Dickensian club.

What I thought - a pub that evokes images of London in the era of Dickens.
What he meant - a pub where Charles Dickens actually used to hang out.





Blurry zooms of St. Paul's and Big Ben.





No spotting of Dr. Who.



Go to London, see a sphinx.



More trips coming soon.
