Last weekend Mr. Summers and I had a weekend in London, and as ex-Londoners we usually do something touristy whenever we go back to visit: This time we boarded an open-top bus and had a tour of the city. It was a whole lot of fun and really quite interesting (you can plug in earphones in for a commentary) - but it was FREEZING cold on top of the bus, despite the weather being a little milder than in recent weeks. So thank goodness for fur and layers, I say!
On an open-top London bus you get a lot of tourists of course, and I noticed the most stylish girls were often Italian or Spanish, and they all had that gorgeous Continental look going on: long brown hair, olive skin, fabulously large sunnies and a slouchy hat. So I got this idea in my head that I too could pretend to be a real European tourist on top of the bus (Brits generally don't count themselves as Europeans) as I'd happened to don the sunglasses/hat thing that day, but simply out of necessity. Hardly the same when you're a pasty girl from the South East of England, but it's nice to pretend, isn't it ;)
FYI: The gates seen here are the ones that George V had erected at an entrance to Regent's Park in 1935... aren't they are soooo beautiful? Well worth a little photo shoot.
