London walk along the Thames at night

Waiting just a few minutes for my son to arrive last night I walked around the south bank of the Thames by the Tate Modern Gallery.

It is a beautiful area, so different from when I used to walk along here 20 years ago.

20 years ago it was desolate, now it is vibrant πŸ™‚ I love London.

Awesome London Walks street art walking tour

I went on a London street art walking tour today with my family. I thought I would like it, but I absolutely loved it. The tour led by Pepe Martinez started at Liverpool Street station and lasted 2 hours. We learnt about Shepard Fairey who also produced the iconic Obama HOPE poster, Eine, Invader, Inkie, Pablo Delgado, Jimmy Cochrane and many more. After the tour we warmed up and took a selfie at the Canvas Cafe on Hanbury Street and then got delicious salt beef bagels from Beigel Bake on Brick Lane.

London’s Burning

It was an amazing summer solstice sunset yesterday. I travelled from Vauxhall to Clapham Junction and took a few pics along the way. Hope you like them.

I was on my way to meet my lovely friend Mike who couldn’t come to my birthday party the night before. Along with my boyfriend Paul we had a fun evening with many caipirinhas. Mike and I both LOVE Brazil. Here we are at 2am before going home.
