Spraying Fashion Graffiti in Leake Street Tunnel Waterloo London

You don’t need to wear a nautical print shirt-dress only when you are out and about for a nautical adventure. No cruise-liners or sea shores, the attire turned out to be perfectly apt against the glitzy graffiti inside the Leake Street Tunnel on that rather overcast day in London.

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’.
