This is on top of Wellington Arch which stands in the middle of the huge Hyde Park Corner roundabout. Apparently this was once the most dangerous roundabout in the world (said Owen) but I will always remember it for very randomly meeting a friend from Germany when crossing over at the traffic lights coming from Green Park.

slides @ tate modern
Well, it obviously was on level seven, and it was in the Tate Modern. My hint gave it away i suspect. The Tate is also where these slides where. The highest one starts at level five only, but it's great fun anyway. To slide you had to queue at a ticket office for a while, get a timed but free ticket and then queued at the slides again - but that is London.
Es war natuerlich im siebten Stockwerk und tatsaechlich in der Tate Modern. Dort gab es auch obige Rutschen (die letzte Woche schlossen), welche aber nur vom fuenften Stockwerk (und vom dritten) starteten.

London had a bit a heat wave last week hitting 26 Celsius, and it is still continuing but slowly fading out. And where could you enjoy the sun better than in Hyde Park?
In London gab's letzte Woche eine kurze und intensive Hitzewelle mit Temperaturen bis 26 Grad. Und kein Platz ist besser zum Sonnen als der Hyde Park.

british museum (2)
Monday, April 16, 2007
After living in London for three years I thought it was about time to go to the British Museum for the first time. The architecture (or should I say engineering?) of the roof is really amazing and so are the exhibitions. Being a bit of a geek in Roman and Ancient Greek history I headed for "Greece and Rome". What I don't quite understand why the Ancient Near East is in the West though...
Nachdem ich drei Jahre in London wohne, habe ich es neulich fuer an der Zeit gehalten, mal das British Museum zu besichtigen. Die Architektur (oder genau die Ingenieurskunst) des Dachs im Innenhof sind wirklich genial und so sind auch viele der Exponate. Als ehemaliger Geek im Bereich Griechenland und Rom habe ich mich natuerlich in den entsprechenden Bereich aufgemacht. Was ich aber nicht ganz verstanden habe ist, warum der Alte Nahe Osten im Westen zu finden ist.

oh - part three in a series of three
And today the final episode of "smilies on the pavement", kindly brought to you by an unknown stranger in a random place. I think it was Montague Close. I shall not forget to remind you of the rubber eraser day which takes place today.
Und heute die letzte Folge der Serie "Smilies auf dem Gehsteig" von Unbekannt and einem nicht ganz genau definierten Ort irgendwo in London. Ich glaube es war Montague Close. Ausserdem darf ich nicht vergessen den geneigten Leser an die Feierlichkeiten zum heutigen Radiergummitag zu erinnern.

imperial war museum
The last week I have been in sunny south Germany but posting London pictures continued magically. Tomorrow night Ryanair is going to get me back into Stansted. With a guest. Now I do something strange: Even though I am the London blogger and (most of) you aren't, I ask you whether you have any recommendations of where to go with a 13 year old tourist. On the list so far: Madam Toussaud's (never been there!), London Dungeon and a boat trip down to Greenwich. Anything else important?

skate park & london eye
I promised a while ago to not put pictures of the London Eye on here any more. That's over now. Here we go: Place for little kids to fall on their noses right next to London Eye.
Ich hatte vor einer Weile versprochen, nix mehr vom London Eye zu veroeffentlichen. Das ist jetzt vorbei. Skatebahn direkt neben London Eye.

good bye london, will be back soon
When I took this picture, I also took this. So that's an English plastic recyclable milk bottle.
I will be away from the greatest city in the world for a few days, I'll probably keep putting pictures on. That will be a good chance to recycle random ones like today's.

I postet a very similar view a view weeks ago. In fact it was taken from the same place at the same time but this time it is the real skyline at night.
Einen aehnlichen Blick gab es schon vor ein paar Wochen. Dieser hier ist vom selben Tag und wahrscheinlich auch vom selben Tag, allerdings stimmt diesmal alles.

theme day: post box
There we go, the actual photo. Nothing special at all because I couldn't come up with anything special. There is different types of post boxes around in London, I think that is one of the older examples. Then there is the ones with a slot for First Class and one for Second Class but they have been scrapped about a year ago I think. And Ham (my fellow London Daily Photo Blogger) took a photo of exactly the same style of box. But it's in a different place.
theme day: post box
PHOTO COMING SOON
Alright. I messed that one up completely. First, I signed up for the theme day too late so that most people wont include me in their links. And now I only shot the photo today and it's on my camera but my cable is at home and I'm still in uni and don't know whether I make it home before midnight. But the photo will come, watch this space ;)
