Around W1






My mum and my step-dad have been visiting us in London for the last few days and yesterday we wandered around Soho in the rain. They had the biggest brolly I've ever seen! It didn't stop us from seeing the rather cool buildings above us though. There's a few of these dotted around town and I've forgotten who the artist is. Anyone know?

    emma: nej, men jag vill ta mig en fika där snart, jag och mannen gick dit på vår första date, men på den tiden hette stället "the livingroom". borde gå dit på date igen 12 och ett halvt år senare!

    toktokada: wow, thanks for the link, such wonderful work!

    mary: I did but only briefly, I did that classic thing of thinking "I'll come back another day" and then never made it. :(
