Had an errand to do in London before leaving England the following day so I took the opportunity in heading straight to the city for some photo practice!
They call this the ‘Gherkin’, the British slang for a small cucumber.
London Bridge (left) has not fallen down yet…thank heavens!

Thank goodness we’ve arrived! Hailed a taxi to save us from towing our bags through snow again. Even if London taxis have now been modernised, they still kept those precious leg and luggage spaces!
