>London 2

>Last day in London. David and I took the Underground to Picadilly Circus and Trafalgar Square. Rain made for poor lighting for photography. Knee pain made for limited mobility. We looked for stations that had lifts and maybe 30% have lifts or escalators. The U.S. is really ahead of Europe with accessibility issues.


We had sushi in a Japanese restaurant at Picadilly Circus and watched outside activity in the rain.
Several streets in China Town had one Chinese restaurant after another.


At Trafalgar Square we saw two young men being thoroughly searched for a long time. Soon after that, there was a helicoptor overhead. I don’t know if there was a high security alert or not.


The Trafalgar Square fountains have been cleaned up since the last time we were there and saw winos peeing in the fountains.

This is a sign we saw on the way to Westminster, an addition since our last visit.


Finally, we saw Big Ben in the rain. The bell foundry we visited yesterday made the bell for Big Ben.
