South Bank & Soho









It's so funny to have my blog and Sandra's blog showing our days we spent together, but from from different perspectives. I hope you're enjoying it too! Seeming as she posted what we ate on the second day I thought I'd complement with some more pictures of where we were in-between meals. We started the day in the Royal Festival Hall (love that place), continued walking along the river and then slowly made our way in to Soho. We managed to catch an old-school double-decker bus (they are very rare these days as the bureaucrats in Brussels deemed them unsafe) and it was so lovely, if a bit bumpy. I love being a tourist in my hometown.

  1. fully enjoying it! fun to see what each of you got out of the same walk. i always liked those double-decker busses, what a shame. really like the one with the endless rows of books and the spy shot of the two men having a lively conversation.

  10. melinda: I took those photos at the royal festival hall. the pattern is called net & ball and you can by doormats (that unfortunately are stupidly expensive) in the south bank festival terrace shop. they also do wallpaper in that pattern and on other bits and pieces.
