It’s been years since I have been to see an orchestra play, and I was greatly impressed. To have that many highly trained musicians practice and perform for such an occasion must be quite an undertaking.

Obligatory Shot of the Clock Tower at the Palace of Westminister

No matter how many times I visit London, I almost always end up visiting Westminster and getting a shot of the clock tower at some point.

I find that whenever I am in front of a very famous sight, I have trouble believing it is real. Somehow, the impression that I have built up in my mind from seeing a place on TV, in movies and so on of the place overlaps with what my senses are telling me. I have never been to New York city but I imagine that the sensation would be very strange after a lifetime spent watching Woody Allen movies and reruns of Friends.
