Saturday part I






Finally got to spend a day with my sister (and her man) - it's been months since we've had the chance to hang out - so on Saturday I went round their neck of the woods for a spot of lunch. On our way to the pub it suddenly got very noisy and as we looked up fighter jets flew over us, on their way to Buckingham Palace to salute the Queen for her birthday celebrations. We didn't really have any plans for the rest day, but after talking about Swedish sweets we decided to make our way over to the Scandinavian Kitchen to stock up. To our surprise we managed to time our crossing of Oxford Street just as hundreds of naked people zoomed by on their bikes. They were taking part of the World Naked Bike Ride and we couldn't quite believe that the traditionally prudish Brits were so happily letting it all hang out. These are two of the more respectable pictures I took, I didn't want you to choke on your breakfast first thing in the morning! More pics tomorrow.

  5. Hahahaha, I saw these guys last year when I was back in London for a week. To say the least, my poor old mum (who traveled with me)was slightly shocked to see all the "equipment" on display haha

  10. funny that the naked men on bikes are wearing shoes and socks - I would have thought they had something a little more important worth protecting!

    Amazing that you managed to capture those red arrows - they were mighty quick weren't they.
