Few weeks before the departure, I finally managed to experience one of the most wanted thing to do after three times being in London : to see London at night.
It was beautiful. It felt even more special because it was also the farewell after more than a year living there. Seeing the city centre full of lights, walking from Oxford Street to Piccadily Circus then a night bus ride to Tower Bridge.
I won’t write long about this. Hope the pictures and the video showed the beautiful scenes enough.
That night, Frank Sinatra’s London by Night became the soundtrack on my head :
There is magic abroad in the air
I’m often told that the streets turn to gold
When the moon shines on Circus and Square
There’s romance in each cigarette glow
Down by the Thames, lights that sparkle like gems
Seem to wink at each girl and her beau
London by Night was indeed a wonderful sight.
