The first day of my last London visit was typical in that when I arrived it was raining. That’s hardly a surprise and I was properly prepared with the right kind of clothes.
Luckily I didn’t have a lot of exposure to the elements that day thanks to being chauffeured by a friend. Even my walk from the tube to my accommodations that night was mostly dry.
My hotel was at Queen’s Gate in South Kensington. Owing to my late arrival in the fog, I didn’t really see much on my way in. I was a bit surprised when I pulled back the curtains of my room to see this neighborhood bathed in warm sunlight.
I made my way out for a walk before the weather changed its mind. The sidewalks and streets were still wet from the evening but the sun was out and the sky was laced with some wispy white clouds that had me straining my neck to take it all in.
It’s always great to be somewhere that is unmistakably itself.
