how awesome is london? i'll tell you. i went there without a destination, and without a map. when i got to paddington station i got one of those tube maps. where to go? i did not know. i chose picadilly circus hoping to see lions and tigers and bears. i got off the tube and surfaced to street level and was overwhelmed by the metropolitan rush. from there, i started walking aimlessly, soaking up the sights. i reached the national gallery and thought, "hey, this is pretty" and walked closer to it. as i did, i could here music blaring off in the distance. i was curious so i followed the sound. hey, whaddaya know, there's a free music festival with lots of pretty people. it was called 'love music, hate racism' and the whole vibe of the festival was very welcoming. i didn't recognise most of the names of the performers, but the headlining band was belle & sebastian. not bad, i say. i wanted to stay there all day, but i decided to walk around london some more and return when belle & sebastian came on.
