Snapshots of Time

Time Changes Everything

I'm in London now. I haven't been here for nearly twenty years.  Twenty years is nothing in the life of a city like this; yet so much has changed.

The skyline has altered: there's a giant ferris wheel beside the Thames and skyscrapers made of curved steel and glass. Hybrid buses, still double decker, but now they actually stop. There's an easy-to-use oyster card for the underground and these nifty little bikes you can ride for next to nothing. And where has all the litter gone?

Every city has its own vibe: Amsterdam has energy, Paris has aggression. And London? London has funk. 

We're here for a week. I wish I had longer...
