When I get home, I’ll have some proper London pictures. Here, though, is a shot from the City, and a shot of Australia House from when we were walking back this afternoon.
We sailed (and then flew!) out of Venice today.
Because Carnevale is coming to an end the airport boats were so packed they couldn’t let half the people on.
There were screaming arguments. And I saw at least three people miss their flights.
Honestly, Venice, put more boats on this ONE day! Otherwise, everything was great.
We flew to London today, the city I did a lot of my growing up in, and a place that is not the most beautful anything, but somewhere I still feel attached to.
We are staying in the middle of Covent Garden, and I have no decent picture, but this is a view from my bed!
Sometimes you just have to sit at a tourist restaurant to get a view like this one of the Rialto Bridge!
Tomorrow all the crowds will be pouring in, so this is as quiet as it will be.
We can usually see the Rialto Bridge from our apartment, but it’s too foggy this morning. The mist is much thicker than it looks in the picture!
Just a quick phone shot from where we had lunch yesterday. Step a few metres from the main thoroughfares and you can enjoy Venice without the tourists.
