Praed Street

I came across this site recently which is called The Way We See It and is dedicated to Londoners taking pictures of specific locations and then putting them all on a flicker stream. I was excited to see some photos of the very building we lived in when we first arrived in London. This is the building at West End Quay on Praed Street that we lived in for one month after our arrival. Here is another picture. And here is the little souvenir shop we passed each day as we walked along. Another view of the building with a deserted pub across the street, which is very near to the metro Tesco where we would get our "daily shop" in. And finally the zebra crossing from St. Mary's Hospital, whose ambulance sirens kept us up half the night until we got used to them. Thanks for taking the trip with me to Praed Street, London!

Funny how I always long for Scotland in the Spring. (In Summer, I long for all the places where I have worked as a missionary in the Summer.)
They are places where I have grown differently than I have grown here. Thanks for sharing your wanderings...

Those are great pictures. I still haven't seen the rest of your pictures from your time away. Maybe sometime soon. Hope you're having a good week.

Wishing I could go back now. How about the London Olympics in 2012? I'm "planning" on it. (-:
