England London Canary Wharf

29 June 2010

Theres nothing to see at Canary Wharf

I spent much of the working day in the car getting back from Essex to Central London. This seemed like a huge waste of time to me but its what a lot of people seem to do every day. A big part of most peoples working day is driving between offices and commenting that the traffic isnt as bad as expected.

I decided to play tube station roulette for my evening activity, and it came up Canary Wharf. This is a new part of town where everything is shiny and new. One of the worlds most terrible bands wrote a song about it called plastic trees, and 2 of the worlds stupidest movies, 28 seconds earlier and 28 hatfuls of cabbage were both filmed here (wikipedia told me this, and many other interesting facts).

It was very shiny and clean, and full of immaculately dressed young people. The open air wine bars were 90% men plus the 1 or 2 attractive single girls from each office who were invited along in case they might get a bit tipsy and agree to something they wouldnt normally.

I did actually find dinner here, read on for the awesomeness of it.

After admiring the plastic lawn of Canary wharf (really, they had fake lawn there), I went back to Bond street and walked home in the daylight at 9:30pm.

Heres my dinner, I ate in a Waitrose supermarket. They set up a few tables and have hot meals to go. This cost 4 pounds, chicken balti, vegetable curry and rice. I didnt eat most of the rice as carbs give you cancer.
