A Tale of Two Cities

Sunday, 6 January 2013








I always forget that London has giant skyscrapers since they're all pretty much concentrated in one place. I stepped out of Canary Wharf station thinking I was in Gotham or something. Turned out I wasn't the only one thinking this as a German tourist walked past and said "which one's the Wayne tower?" to his friend.
It was a huge contrast to Greenwich where I spent the day doing what I do best - wandering around aimlessly. It's a really pretty place and you kind of forget you're in London, until you walk up the hill in the park and see the skyscrapers in the background. I just wish there had been clear skies today, it looks like someone rubbed out the top of the buildings.

  2. I love the coat you're wearing, the red is an awesome colour. I know what you mean about London - that's why when you go to a built up city like Manhattan or Hong Kong, it's a shock to see all the skyscrapers all bunched together. Pretty awesome.

    1. Thanks! Haha I know what you mean about there, it's weird to think they make millions in such a small area.
