I was being a bit smart saying I didn’t know what that building was in my last blog. It was all becoming a bit of a blur and I kind’ve didn’t care any more. It was the parliament buildings of course and it all feels a bit better today. I think this place would be awesome if you met a mate here who knew the place. It feels a bit like a massive railway station and everyone is rushing somewhere.
Weather is a little cooler after the rain yesterday but check out today’s sky. This is Tower Bridge. In my opinion the light blue paintwork is entirely the wrong colour to complement the old Tower looking a bit like icing on a cake, but then may be that was the look they were going for. Some useless trivia is that this bridge opens regularly daily to let the big boats go through up or down the Thames and it’s only failed twice in its few hundred years history. One of those times was the day it was officially opened! Pretty good record!
Half time at the show Jersey Boys today. It was a very cool performance and the three ladies next to me enjoyed it sooo much! They had come down from Scotland especially for it and the one next to me luckily had a great voice, as she sang and clapped her way throughout the whole thing. She knew every song. Cried twice! And I thought she was going to piss herself when they sang ‘Sherry Baby’. It was great. Really!
And this is Trafalgar Square early evening with the crowds thinning out. You should’ve seen it earlier. The whole city was grid locked and the bus we were making our way to westend on had barely moved in a half hour. We asked the driver if he thought we’d make Picadilly in a half hour as needed to get to our show and he shook his head and said we might just make it if we went fast on foot. Took off and found ourselves in the middle of a ‘Free Palestine parade’ which was massive. Had to join the parade and slip across to get to the other side and carry on our way.
It’s been a great day and arriving at the theatre with fifteen minutes to spare was rewarded with a whiskey and a beer! London is still not my kind’ve place but that’s cool. We go to John’s tomorrow and I’m looking forward to meeting his family before we go to Wales for four nights.
