Travel: London February 2018

Good Morning!!

We started our late winter sojourn in London.  Cool comfortable days with chilly nights.  Spent Friday getting acquainted with Central London.  We went to see the movie Black Panther at the massive Empire Theaters on Leicester Square.

Today it is expected to rain so we will head to the massive Westfield Shopping Center where there are 450 stores, two giant movie complexes and dozens of restaurants.

It is our last day in London.  Tomorrow we take our first “Chunnel” to Paris where we have rented an Apartment in the Bastille neighborhood.

Here are some photos from our walk yesterday to the famed Borough Market South of the Thames.

Monument to the Great Fire of London opened 1677.
The Shard is now a 95 story landmark of Modern London.  Tallest building in Europe.
Morning view of the Tower Bridge taken from the London Bridge, the ever changing skyline beyond.
The interior of the Southwark Cathedral dates back to 1207 AD where Shakespeare prayed while his brother Edmund rang the bells.
The famed and massive Borough Market with its food stalls, thirsty customers and fancy food shops has been operating for over 800 years.
A giant red balloon hovers over Covent Gardens, another iconic market, for an extended Valentines Day.
Belgo for lunch is one of our favorite restaurants in London. Belgian steamed mussels and frites and a pint of Belgian beer!
