|This modest little mansion is found in the Old Marylebone area, we could imagine a flat here!|
I get new visitors from time to time, and that is very nice! I do wish you would comment more often, I like comments and I trust in my old friends who always brings me a thought or two, but there is space enough for more....

|Lovely neighbourhood, Camden|
So, what did we do in London? We walked.....oh and we used the DLR AND Tube and bus!!!
But, sing Halleluya, every day, I'm walking with the King!! Yes, every day wherever I go!
Last time we had one tiresome and frustrating busexperience, this time we got on the wrong train, had a furious set of platform staff on our hands and now my husbands backpack is statuated in Brighton. Not all were furious though, we had some good help but Brighton was too far off , it's complicated...I hope they find good use for it....
So, the "No elevator hotel" was rather cozy , staff lovely, breakfast good, room steaming but we went out walking. Even taking the tube means walking walking and climbing endless stairs...but I love the system, it really is swift.
|Archades on our way to Picadilly, we saw some more along Bond Street. Nice, but expensive.........|
|Remember the tv-series Soap? Here it is - Soap!!|
Us? We perchased dvd's.....HMV is our second home, almost. I bought a new phone last week and wanted a cover for it, but oh, Iphone this and that and Samsung hi and ho, but mine?? No... It's still in oldest daughters too large old cover, stuck with sticky pads...
|Found some nice films!!|
|Splendour in it's best, even an odd pub can be beautiful!!!|
|New architecture by the Banks, we have similar in my hometown but these look better!!|
We ventured a continued crossing of the Thames by several bridges, quite a nice way to spend a sunny evening, we thought!!
|The Globe, the Globe!!!!!1|
|On our way to the Globe we pass this small alley|
Last time we were here there was a large number of street musicians and this time we hardly noticed anyone.
I can wonder why.
We also noticed an increasing number of tourists from Asia, we see that a lot in Sweden too.
Asia, all parts but North Korea, is very interesting to young travellers today, they go to Vietnam, Japan, Kambodja , South Korea.
Next time we go to GB if mrs May let us in, we will spend but a couple of days in London and then onward, so many places to see....
Still, we rushed past all the stores in Bond Street and peeked in at F&M feeling very plain and awkvard, but enjoyed the streets, the houses, people, noices, a mere visit, we wouldn't want to live in the middle of it but found plenty of wonderful little towns when we got on the trains....Like Bromley on Bow... just the taste of the name!!!!!
And plenty to eat.....
|Pie at Mabels, Spitfire gravy....|
|Roast duck from China In|
|Pizza at Zophias|
Roast chicken with several sides
And, and this is very important, so many pleasant and helpful people....we ...know what it's like to endure tourists so the patience, the patience.....
In our village life is slowly quieting down, boats are drawn up, caravans are moving away, school starts tomorrow, end of most markets and fairs.
I like this - the pace goes down and things are back to normal. Did I write this last year too?? Probably.
God bless you!
