Rain Breaks Heatwave

Picture of Piccadilly Circus, London, 17 July 2003

It’s been very hot in London recently which has been lovely really but a little sticky if you happen to be working in an office that has no air-conditioning. Today, the rain has properly broken through – which will be good for my garden – and forced tourists and office workers to put up their umbrellas. Looking around Piccadilly Circus at lunch time I was struck by the grandeur of some of the buildings. The dome on this one – not sure what it houses – is something I’ve never noticed before. Isn’t it fantastic how, just by looking in a different direction, you can see a city in a whole new light?

On this day…
