We had another sunny day today, never mind the cold temperatures... And The Mall was all dressed up for the state visit of the South African president Jacob Zuma. Not a single gray cloud on the sky. Lets hope it stays like that for a long while.

Well, it is no surprise to me that when I have half my day off work the weather would go back to its miserable, grey and cold ways. It hurts even more after 2 beautiful days like yesterday and the day before. In any case at least I had a glimpse of the spring, that I hope will be bright and warm. But for today, instead of a walk trough Hyde Park, I came back home after having to negotiate my way trying to avoid the sea of merchandise flooding the pavements of Bethnal Green Road. No surprises here either.

We had such a beautiful day today. All that sunshine and mild temperatures really put me on a wonderful mood. I really wanted to go out and take pictures of the day, but instead spent my day locked inside at work and by the time I went out the sunshine was long gone. What a pity. And so it was that I only managed to have these vegetables for you today, they remind me of greenery and light. A bit of sunlight on a little convenience shop at Bethnal Green Road.

Went to The Barbican Centre yesterday afternoon to see the Tom Ford movie, A Single Man, which was very good, and a wonderful art installation of birds playing guitars by Céleste Boursier-Mougenot that blew my mind. Absolutely fantastic. And for free. I love The Barbican.They always have something interesting going on, be it an art installation, a play, an exhibition or a concert. And their prices are quite cheap when not entirelly free.

The Leopold Buildings on Columbia Road are my favorite buildings in London. I never tire of looking at them, like every sunday when I go for a walk along the Columbia Road Flower Market. If I could choose a place to live in London I would choose it without hesitation.

I always find it sad to stumble upon scenes like the above. Specially when it is on my street. Well, I guess the East-End gets a bad reputation for a reason. But still I would never give up living here. For every stolen bike dumped on my neighbourhood I find many nice places to enjoy and good people to be around.
PS. check the Bicycle Universe for ways to prevent your bike being stolen.
