April has been wonderful; a whirlwind of debaucherous fun, fairgrounds, 54 hour parties and sunshine - oh, sweet sunshine! Summer is so close I can nearly smell it.. if it wasn't smothered by London's endearingly stagnant, polluted air.
I get so many bursts of overwhelming adoration for this city. I've been here for nearly 9 months and every week I find something else that makes me fall in love with it even more. On Monday I met a friend and we took a slow stroll along Southbank in the evening sun. He kept stating his dislike for the modern architecture that peppers the skyline but I love it. Old and young, modern and ancient, chalk and cheese. Buildings with history, and buildings with history yet to be made. Contrast.
May, I hope you are just as wonderful.
