Back at ATW central after my weekend break in London. Having teenage kids means one thing – shopping, and for me that is a fate worse than death but one I endure in the name of family compromise! We had a great time but as always with a weekender it goes by in a twinkling of an eye. I did enjoy Spamalot and we had an excellent Saturday evening meal in the sumptuous surroundings of the Cinnamon Club. I always do enjoy London but my goodness does it involve walking here and there – my feet felt like they had been in a marathon!!
I couldn’t help but notice the growing legions of Burka/Niqab clad-females in the major stores around Oxford Street – with section of Selfridges and Harrods looking like downtown Tehran. One of the things that surprised me that these Islamic ladies were busy buying the richest trinkets produced by the running dogs of the infidel West. I do understand that there is a place for modesty in how one dresses but I honestly do find the sight of these covered up legions of Islam disconcerting because more than anything else, I believe they are making a political statement and they are getting more confident by the day. I also saw the "Peace Camp" outside Parliament – a bunch of out and out extreme left wackos who litter the grass a few yards from the statue of Sir Winston Churchill. They were waving placards calling for the arrest of Gordon Brown as a "war criminal" LOL.
One of the real treats for me when in London is admiring the wonderful architecture, some of it hundreds of years old. You can walk along a side-street and suddenly come across the most fantastic old building that takes your breath away. Got back through Heathrow with no bother and finished the day with the Italian Rugby team on our flight – mamma mia! With my wife and kids shopped out, I now hope to return to the normality of the insanity of ATW! Now, where to start…..???
