Damn Dan, I'd hate to see what you call a Big Pickle!

You're right though, you did figure it was Old Blighty.

My sister took this pic when my Mom visited her. Truth be told, I'd have guessed Paris cause of the 5 story older buildings mixed in w/ "skyscrapers".
I know Paris better than London. I'd read about the little Gherkin when it was being built, something about the shape reducing the wind tunnel effect on its surroundings.
