When frequenting London, whether on a course or a long weekend of cultural adventure, my favourite area of bright lights are to be found in and around Covent Garden. Where the pubs and eateries lay spread about in great abundance; a gastronomic, boozeanomic festivel, for those of us who partake in a drop of ‘hows your father, is your mother well‘!It would seem that there now shines a brighter light within the City, though it is one you would not wish to stand beneath for too long. The concave shaped building, ‘aka’ the Walkie Talkie building, at 20 Fenchurch Street, Eastcheap, City of London; is throwing the sun’s powerful rays down onto the pavement below, melting anything plastic within its reach, burning carpets in doorways, and cracking tiled floors at the front of buildings..
It is even hot enough to fry an egg (those pesky news people and their gimmicky stories)!
But hey, if you’re a homeless illegal immigrant, just jump in with your pan, there’s even room for your chums too… Top tip for any one looking in from the UK Border Agency (nudge-nudge, wink-wink)
