If you're in London right now,
here's what you're seeing..

Tower Bridge

The Shard

London's newest addition to the skyline
opened July 5th

It houses a spa, hotel, restaurant, residential apartments, 
offices, and observatory deck

The observatory deck is almost twice the height
of any other viewing platform in London
with a breathtaking 40 mile, 360 degree view
(deck open to public Feb 2013)

The Shard
Europe's newest and tallest skyscraper standing
309.6 meters (1,016 feet) tall 

Piccadilly Circus

Regent Street
( not as busy as you'd expect )


Hot pink is the color of the Olympics this year

Great directional signage throughout the city
Cheerful volunteers in pink stand at key intersections 
with iPads ready to help with anything

London Underground

Many wrapped in their country's flag

Next stop,
Olympic Park

Hope to see you at my next post :)
