London Day 7 Simon and the Shard

We met Simon at the London Station which sits underneath the Shard and went up together for the most fantastic views.  It is fascinating to be in this modern glass building and from within take in the views of the old.  You can see the Tower of London, St. Pauls Cathedral and many of the new buildings too.  The trains reminded me of worms coming up from the earth after a heavy rain.

Furman and Simon

It was making me a bit dizzy up there.
After circling the viewing level and chatting it up with Simon, we descended and walked down to the river.  At the Borough Market we drooled at the delicacies and could not resist some fresh bread and a selection of cheeses which we stashed away for later.


The street performers were in full force as we walked and talked along the river.

This guy was the most bizarre as he sat in the air and on occasion moved and squeaked at the visitors who doubted that he was a real man.

These two were just two funny to ignore.

Couldn't think of a better way to end our visit and walk..ahhhh cappuccino.
