Salute 2011: I love LondonPosted by moscarelli
Londinium is a really great city. I love it! This is my 8th or 9th time that I visit it, and I want to come again and again. This is my report about the other things I did beside Salute together with my old chaps. And there is no Salute without a visit to London…
First thing to do in London: to see the latest miniatures painted by our guest Luca. It is late, but little soldiers are little soldiers!
This is Henry, but it is a female. It lives in the house and used to sleep between me and Narciso. I had only half bed because the other half was for Henry. It has very affectionate ways, a puss machine!
Next year will be the Olympic year. The clock in Trafalgar square.
Renzo Piano has the longest… skyscraper. The skyline has a new presence, you can always see it around London. Ready for 2012. The Belfast vessel and the Tower of London pier watch the development.
The heart of Little Italy, the church of St. Peter.
The memorial on the sink of Arandona Star, the ship with part of the Italians who lived in London, deported toward Canada in 1940.
Another ship, a reconstructed ship, with a freshwater sailor on it.
Even the Doctor visits Forbidden Planet shop.
A local delicatessen: a Dalek cake!
Real British food: gammon with eggs and chips.
British food again: fish and chips with peas.
From left to right: Luca (his left arm), me, Narciso, the right hand of Paolo with a pint of bitter, Paolo, Ornella (the back of his head).
Shop of Westminster Abbey. Maybe there will be a marry the 29th of April…
And in another shop there is a salute from the Queen.
28mm scale to show the construction of the underground. Museum of Transport.
The dock outside Canal Museum.
New London Architecture and a view on the development of the city. It is not a dead city like Rome, here there is a plan for the future realised in the present. London is a great city.
