In London there are a LOT of people going to all kinds of places. For the most part I found London to be very friendly, it’s lovely.
We walked across the Blackfriars Bridge today. It was cold and windy but the excitement of walking around so much history almost makes you forget about the cold. Here is an old silent film about it .. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=fABILtla_lE&safe=active
This razor sharp glass building is called the Shard, presented in 2012 it’s the tallest building in London
I wish I could do justice to the food system here. Everywhere you turn the food is authentic and whole. They had pictures of the farm on the walls, I asked about the butchering and they adhere to the standards of humane treatment of animals.

Aww, she is just a bundle of sweetness!
For lunch we had falafel wraps and ate in the churchyard of Southwark Cathedral. As we ate I heard the church bells ringing. I can imagine year after year the bell calling worshipers.
We took a bus to Covent Gardens. It’s a festive market and entertainment area off of DRURY LANE! http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covent_Garden
What a busy day we had. I got to babysit tonight. We had dinner, read a story and then watched my fall favorite Charlie Brown’s story of the Mayflower and Thanksgiving. http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Covent_Garden
Thanking God for a wonderful day.
God is Jehovah-shalom. This name means “the God of peace.” We are meant to know the fullness of God’s perfect peace, or His “shalom.” God’s peace surpasses understanding and sustains us even through difficult times. It is the product of fully being what we were created to be.
