Light rain so umbrella in hand I took the tube to St Pauls and then I walked around trying to find the Roman Ruins. In the 1950's the Roman Temple of Mithras the largest and most important temple in Roman London; it was found during construction work. It it is now open to the public with free tours. I did not realize you needed a ticket in advance despite being free admittance but I was so lucky as the woman took pity on me and let me without one.

I made a visit to my fave bridge Tower Bridge all these years and I am still fascinated with it. I decided to walk across it this time as it was a beautiful day. A great walk, I wound up walking some more but decided I was too exhausted to walk all the way back to my hotel, I had got a bit lost so was further than I wanted to walk and decided to take the under ground back.

I walked around for awhile and found Petticoat lane the rain had let up for awhile I bought a t shirt for a pound just because the guy selling had a very strong Cockney accent. I then headed to find Spitfields and
Brick Lane. Somehow my memory actually
worked and I remembered where it was. I
had a sausage it was so good and a can of pepsi it was raining lightly so I
found a spot to stand under a bit of cover, I was getting organized my bag and
then saw a pepsi in bag? Realized I took one from the vendor I returned
it. Found a band playing they were quite
young and quite good and name of band was Bandits on Run I watched them for
about an hour bought their CD they were from Brooklyn.
