Boor-is

London is the most exciting city in the World. There is no other place on the planet that so effortlessly mixes art, fashion, international and local cultures, music, architecture and history in the way London does. Yesterday I walked miles through the city taking pictures and eating and drinking at small pubs and cafes meeting, mostly tourists it has to said, but locals too and enjoying revisiting some familiar and nowadays not so familiar places. My legs still hurt from the shock of exercise because I have not done that much walking for years but I had fun and it was worth it. It is a great city with great people…

Except that it appears Boris will win the mayoral elections.

London people…Why!!!????

UPDATE 2nd May. Around midnight they announced Booris had won. Now London has a mayor as mad and bad as Tokyo‘s Shintaro IshiharaGeorge Bernard Shaw said “Democracy is a device that ensures we shall be governed no better than we deserve.” But this can’t be right, can it?

    I have absolutely no idea how people would choose Boris. All his words come out from the Daily Mail!

    I miss London. I am looking forward to pop in a pub and drink with you in the near future.

    Talking of a brand-new mayor of London, I don’t know what Boris is like, though, governers who have been writer are mostly egoistic.

    I hope things doesn’t get worse during my living in London.
