London never ceases to surprise us…

Today after planning a trip to Cornwall, we ended up going to Central london. But we found that London had more to offer us, than we had ever seen. Our first visit was Selfridges. A huge department store with a wide variety of shops inside. I was in the books section and the glass section, where artists have used glass as a medium of their creativity.

After the brief visit, we had our lunch at “american burger”, which turned out to be a damp squib, before we caught a bus to Westminister. From Westminister we were to take the walk from Waterloo station. We started walking from the Bigben, through the millenium wheel., a long walk by river thames. Artists were playing along the footpath. and Zubin was enraptured by a westerner playing sitar.

We had a short break at National Film theatre, in front of which a book exhibition was going on. We soon started from there, past the Tate mordern art gallery, past millenium hanging brigde., closed due to faulty design/construction. Soon we reached Vinepolis, the city of wine. I was admiring the architecture of the building, and wondering at the total “earthiness” of the building.

Out from vinepolis, again joining the path by thames, the Queens walk, we went past a thai restaurant, which due to dissenting voices, I couldnt visit. Another long stretch of walk took us past HMS belfast, a warship of 1938. Soon we were near Tower bridge, and past the tower bridge, we soon were on the underground, catching a train back home..

A quick visit to Pizza hut,. and a watching a movie at home., before I knew, I was on a journey to sleepland.
