I was lucky enough to have the opportunity to visit London.
I visited some of the iconic landmarks in this grand lady’s cache….always impressed by the constant reminders of my Australian culture’s roots. I always felt some of these elements were so out of place in the hot desert-like climate of my childhood (the carefully manicured botanical gardens devoid of native plants, for example), but seeing all this “English” in the climate, light and environment it evolved in suddenly made a lot more sense to me.
Sadly, the events on the Tower of London took place during my stay. Long live London!
