I'm currently enjoying London's unseasonally mild weather.
Trafalgar Square is the focal point for huge celebrations for Kosovo indepence, thousands are here, tooting horns and waving flags. It's been going on all day and is deafening!
Today I went to the Churchill museum and underground war office bunker which was great - hearing Winston's speaches and seeing all the wartime images of London.
You can't actually walk down Downing St - let alone go past No.10
Well armed police behind the gates at the entrace to Downing St.
Saw the Queen's cavalry and walked in St James's park, which was magnificent on a day like this. Also a brush with (past) fame - I literally just about bumped into Bryan Ferry as he got out of a taxi.
Yesterday I visited the Tower of London, went on a Thames river cruise down to the London Eye, and went on the Eye - which was incredible. Also visited Buckingham palace etc.
I'm really enjoying London and the sunny weather and blue skys are are making it all the more enjoyable.
