“Picadilly at night II”

copyright 2001, Grabo'

We had just spent a wonderful day touring the wonders of London: the Natural History museum, the British Museum with its antiquities from Egypt, Assyria, and Babylon, and, of course, the shopping! Something was missing, I thought, as Victoria Station was closed for the umteenth time for a bomb threat and we boarded an overcrowded double-decker bus. “Let’s go to Picadilly,” I offered. “I’m tired!” came the reply from one of my teenagers. “This is our last night here, and you’ll thank me,” I retorted. They did — they found enough excitement there to keep them going a couple more hours. This is the hub of London at night. Enjoy!

London, October, 1996
