As excited as I am for moving to London, it’s going to hurt not being able to witness this.
Viewfromkingstreet: You will have a great time! But you’re right about the sky and sea. The sky in England is about two feet above your head…and is always grey and the North Sea is brooding and dark. When you come back to Australia it will be like seeing the Wizard of Oz for the first time…when the movie shifts from B&W to glorious technicolor! (Don’t get me wrong, London is my home town…and I love her dearly.)
I live in Paris and it’s very similar here - but there is this warm, iridescent glow to the night sky quite similar to this picture which reminds you that the city is full of wonderful people and things living above, below and all around you. But I miss Newy and the concept of an Aussie town very much.
