Covent Garden

I spent a few hours walking the streets of London yesterday.

In my attempt to find Tottenham Court Road, I managed to end up in Covent Garden, somewhere I've not been before.

I loved it.

There was this talking dog. He just sat there, all day.

These statues were something else. I've never seen anyone be so statue-like. Not even a hint of breath. In fact, I was thinking that they might actually be real statues, secretly put there by a human statue in the middle of the night when he got tired of standing still for a living.

The volunteer. Why do we feel so pressured to grow up?

This opera singer was amazing. I've found myself becoming increasingly attracted to male opera singers. Good job *Twinkle*gets here soon, don't want all that wedding planning going to waste.

I know, it's odd. I was a bit surprised myself...!

I can't believe you stay in the UK but have never been to Covent Gardens!! It's one of my favourite places in London and I've brought every single one of my visiting friends there!

Off topic but...whatever.

A couple of book reccomendations (when you fancy a bit of time-out from the "self-improvement" malarkey):
The Varieties of Scientific Experience: A Personal View of the Search for God by Carl Sagan (or any book by him)...and:
The Elegant Universe: Superstrings, Hidden Dimensions and the Quest for the Ultimate Theory by Brian Greene
...fascinating and inspiring in the truest sense.
