Page 2 -- More London


Morning in London.

Fleet Street





St Bride's Churchyard.





The historic church of printing, editing, and literature, St Bride's had second century Roman ruins in the basement and, on the day we visited, a smashing choir singing in the sanctuary.





Drawing of Fleet Street and The Strand, sometime after the great fire of 1666, from the top of St Paul's.

St Bride's is the first church on the left, heading down the street.





We wandered the back streets of Fleet Street, passing by the old house of Samuel Johnson, the great lexicographer.





London, like most European cities, is a walker's town.





Across the river from the Aquarium.





The Aquarium, on the Thames River, also known as the British Movieum and, apparently, "County Hall."

These Brits -- such jokers!





Nadia and Big Ben.









The back door of the Parliament.
