Four days in London

Hampstead Heath

Manor House tube station

the Clock Tower, Crouch End

A couple in Hampstead Heath

Workmen's cafés aren't what they used to be - check the sign for Mocha Caffe Latte!

They say when you are tired of London, you are tired of life.
I say, you never get tired of London, just tired of living there.

The poet William Blake wrote about London in his "Songs of Experience":

I wander thro' each charter'd street,
Near where the charter'd Thames does flow,
And mark in every face I meet
Marks of weakness, marks of woe.

No "Songs of Innocence" for London.
