England London St Pauls

17 July 2019

2 new strategies

Exploring the Thames near St Pauls cathedral

To actually give myself some non work time in the evening and to find more opportunities in the day time to sneakily take a few photos, I took my camera to work.
During the work day I had to move offices, so I took a few photos while on the go. Then after work, I just wandered around in my work clothes instead of going back to my hotel first, to maximise my 1.5 hours free time in the day.

Both journeys kind of went to the same eastern part of London near St Pauls and Liverpool street station as you shall see. It is an area I used to visit on my first couple of trips, but I have not been there lately.

I am starting to be annoyed at daylight. It makes for boring photos when its always daylight. Generally when I am on holidays the evenings are darkness, and different due to the day time which is lightness. Basically I wish everything, buildings, shops, lights etc. wasnt always all the same. London is a bit better than Paris in this respect, in that theres some variety in the buildings, but its still pretty grey and boring. The above was worded poorly, I dont care, read it backwards it makes more sense that way.

Tomorrow I have to get up early and go to somewhere near Birmingham for the day, I have no idea what time I will get back. So there may not even be an update tomorrow!
Before that I must fight the slow internet and try and go asleep at 8pm in broad daylight with the noise from the pub downstairs. Good times.

One of the fancy sandwich / salad cafes where I had dinner recently is Pret a Manger, every now and then you see a special vegetarian only branch of the same store. Interesting idea, the only time I saw something similar was vege only Subway stores in India.

Regulations around car washes seem to be a bit lax in London, just some dudes with drums of chemicals running down the drain as they scrape grease and toxins off filthy vans. I looked up if I was spelling lax right, I am, its a relaxed way of saying relaxed.

Children have constructed this fish out of plastic bottles. Once the exhibition is over they will take it down to Dover and float it out to sea to see how far it goes before it disintegrates and becomes delicious sea plastic.
