At The British Museum On A Rainy Day

Weather was at its whimsical best last weekend when it blew hot and cold oscillating trying to figure out whether to let the sun shine or to let the rain doors open. Otherwise windy and rather chilly outside, the opportunity was ripe to explore a London venue under covers. Where else one could be amused in London but in many of its free museums and especially when a visit to the British Museum counts as the pilgrimage to explore the heritage and history of mankind and civilizations from around the world. With our sunglasses and umbrellas both with us – we went to immerse ourselves in the musings of the British Museum.

Under the floral spell

While you may claim insurance if your flight is delayed, you may not be entitled to claim compensation for late arrival of summer this year in London. Weather here is mercurial resulting in celebratory behaviour among the city dwellers in the first sight of sunshine and the first feel of proper balmy air. So was it the other weekend and we ventured out in the Regents Park to witness the first day first show of the supposedly short film in London called ‘Summer’.

Chasing the primary colours of Primrose Hill

Primrose Hill is a prime location to watch the London city skyline. We decided to make the most of the day light saving this weekend when the clocks were forwarded by an hour to allow for some more sunshine, atleast according to our clocks. So we thought to discover the primary elements of nature in London by exploring this famous and popular North London neighbourhood.

Bywater Street: London’s Candy Corner

All smile because the sun is out, all spring up because the spring is in the air. To bypass the grey and gloomy winter out of the calendar, I stepped out wearing the spring palettes and headed to the West London gem at Bywater Street in Chelsea. Year in year out, the houses of Bywater Street continue to hold on the vibrant pastel colours they have been painted with, but especially when its spring time, this cul-de-sac shines in all its colourful tones.

Musing in the Mews

Why do some leaves turn red during autumn? Is it because they are angry at the prospect of an incoming chilly winter soon precipitating their decoupling from the mother trees?
