And home again. London was great. Talking to other Brits made me recognise what an amazing job you have, Rob
We never expected that the Tower would hold so much history and artefacts, Thanks! If you ever want to come over, you are always welcome.

Entering London with a sidecar is something I would recommend to my worst enemy. The pavement is a mixture of manholes. potholes, repair patches and some strips of bitumen. With a right hand sidecar it is impossable to avoid het bumps and holes. Even when the passenger is constantly shouting to take her from the opposite lane. The traffic is a complete mess. London is designed for horses and carriages, nowadays everything moves with that speed. Drivers are very patient, having a sidecar generates a lot of positive reactions and gestures. It is doable, But you won't enjoy it.

And yes, we have pictures. But I do not have an Smugmug account. Once i have that sorted, I will post pictures of Londan and England.

Crossing a certain bridge in a certain town. My escort is riding behind me on the Ural. Thanks Rob, we made it to Greenwich. We checked and the begin of the planet is still there.


Two sidecars parked in the kazemattes of the Tower. Probably the safest place in the UK.


This is the other side of the wall. This is not an amusement park, this is one of the oldest pieces of English history, with amazing queues.


The rest of the pictures are common touristic pictures. white cliffs, red phone boxes, Stonhenge, lands end.






Sammy Miller museum:





I do not know these people, apparently they are from Ipswich. The post belongs to a commercial photographer.
