[✍] London: Day Eight (2010) [LJ blog]


The whole week was really busy. I had classes every day, and on Saturday I had a trip to Greenwich to pick up Korg Prophecy (the way back took several hours because trains on the Jubilee Line were crawling rather than moving, and the Central Line was closed/delayed forever).

This morning I went to Holborn and took a bus number 171 to go to Camberwell. I had my camera with me (during the whole week I had no time for photowalking, although I still managed to walk in South Kensington and Chelsea as well as some other places every evening).

So today I am ready to publish a short photoblog. 🙂

I walked these streets feeling fantastic, until I noticed raindrops falling from the sky…

Then I took a bus to the British Museum (with a short stop at Waterloo railway station to make a call and have a coffee; it was already raining heavily at the time). When I got to Russell Square, it was raining cats and dogs, my umbrella did not help, so I had to wait out the downpour in a phone booth for some time.

And from there I headed to Tottenham Court Road and dropped into a bookstore on Great Russell Street, feeling inspired to buy some art history books.
