Friday was a free day!
Because the college was closed for a Graduation Ceremony we could use the time and the marvellous weather to explore the city. On Monday I will find out what my students did on that day, but I can show you what I did.
This is obviously nothing for people who are afraid of hights, but the view on that day was just...
|New skyscrapers in the City of London - the financial district|

|Can you spot the "Walki-Talki"?|
|... and the Gherkin?|
|Do you see St Paul's Cathedral?|
|Where is the London Eye?|
|Southwark Cathedral, Borough Market is under the roofs on the left and under the railway bridge|
I had a great experience going up to the 72nd floor of western Europe's highest building, called THE SHARD. I went there via two lifts. I was extremely lucky to have the most beautiful weather you can have for such an occasion. For more information, see: http://the-shard.com/
