Several Busy Days in the Land of Mr. Leitch

Just returned from the land where nearly everyone sounds as lovely as this young lady’s query to the tailor, entering his shop at the 2:16 mark of Si & Gar’s Fakin’ It: “Good Morning, Mr. Leitch.  Have you had a busy day?”

I’m no Mr. Leitch, but we did have several pleasantly busy days, touring London prior to joining colleagues in Birmingham for the ICBO Conference.  For the sake of posterity, or at least as long as WordPress stays in business, here is a pictorial overview.  I’ll split this up into several themes, the first of which was our base at the lovely Marriott County Hall.

The Marriott is located on the main drag, Westminster Bridge Road, overlooking the Thames River.  Natyrally there’s a lovely Starbucks round the corner, and we were surrounded by iconic landmarks such as Westminster Abbey and Big Ben, but one that didn’t dawn on me until the day tripping open air bus tour guide pointed it out was that we were right across from St. Thomas’ Hospital, professional home of Florence Nightingale.
