"Waterloo sunsets (I am in paradise)" is a famous song by the Kinks. French impressionists (I think I'm right) have painted it.
This is "Waterloo lunchtime" - at noon.
Many will recognise it and love it. Those of you who have no idea about London will now see. This is London in March. On sunny days London's nice, but on grey days it's, well, just Grey! London has enormous amounts of culture and entertainment to offer the tourist, but the overall sense of London is "Business and Commerce"; "world Business"; and that's how I like it.
I am standing on Hungerford Bridge looking East towards Waterloo Bridge and the City of London in the distance. St.Paul's Cathedral, with its distinctive dome, is more or less in the centre and the towers of the city are clear on the right of it. On the extreme right we see the rising central core of the new "Shard" - the skyscraper going up at London Bridge.
