Another London Entry

My flight to Canada was from London to Montreal. Why, you might be wondering? Because, it is impossible to buy a direct flight from Dublin to Canada before the 1st of May. And so, not unhappily, I dragged myself back to London for a quick couple of days of sight seeing and visiting friends. Oh, and in case you were wondering why I went back to Canada, well... Ontario gives each of its residents 2 years worth of total travelling time before they cut off your OHIP privileges and since I've now been away for over two years I have to put my feet on Canadian soil every six months or lose my OHIP, which would create more headaches than I wish to deal with.

So, back to London. My first stop (after dropping off my bags) was Camden to jack myself up on caffeine and survey what damage remained from the fire.

And lastly a witty political mural in Islington. For those of you who don't know, Tesco's is a very large grocery store chain in the UK and Ireland that many people feel wields unfair power in the marketplace.

The ground in April in Green Park must be much warmer and much drier than here. We'll probably wait til June for that kind of lounging around!!
