Sadly, I don't have much time to get around, since I am visiting family in Richmond Upon Thames and need to spend time with them, but who knows, maybe they 'd be loving to go and visit the Notthinghill Summer Carnival, although they all look like the same around Europe but the ones that are really fun to see and will be across South America for sure, but thanks for the link.

We don't have any summer over here this year anyway, wonder if they would wear turtle necks underneath of the customs?!

Walking is good for one's health.

still weird to think of London having a super tall building. It looks awesome though.

Hopefully, once it is topped off, the French, Dutch and Germans will be in awe and start to copy and follow the Brit's example and build a few supertalls too. But regardless, Londen has set the trend and won't be losing it for some time either ... I can't wait for the next tall one, Bishop's gate to be built.
