london, part two.

the only structure my entire visit saw was my tour of the tower of london. mostly, i wandered. i wanted my first experience of london to be less about seeing everything and more about seeing where each minute would lead me.

i found myself at hyde park, in the tea room at harrod's, in the courtyard of westminster
abbey, on abbey road by accident. i found that i liked morning in knightsbridge and afternoon in bloomsbury and the way the setting sun made the houses of parliament glow. i liked the twinkling lights along the thames and ending up at big ben just as he chimed. and those red, red telephone boxes! i might have loved those quirky little icons the most.

it's true what they say, that not all who wander are lost. sometimes those who wander are finding.
