I feel very lucky to live in London, despite the crowds, the mess, the noise, the bustle. Because London is a fantastic city, full of a mix of wonderful people and containing the most fantastic art, culture and history.
On Sunday afternoon, Jess and I walked from the Museum of London (where we saw the Sherlock Exhibition, more on that soon) via Bank and to the Tower of London where we saw the poppies. The display is to mark 100 years since the start of World War I and although they are now being dismantled, but there are still more than enough to make an impact. What an impressive scene.
It was dark by the time we got there, which made it even more moving. And as we walked by the Thames, I was struck once again by the beauty of my home town.
Jess turned to me and told me how much she loved London too, and how there was nowhere else like it. She’s right.
