going to the gherkin


one of the most striking and iconic buildings on the london skyline is affectionately known as the gherkin, for its cucumber-like shape. s's former colleague kindly invited us up to the top to drink in the view...and a few cocktails.

it was lovely to see london from above. i still get a little thrill every time i see the familiar landmarks: the london eye, tower bridge, big ben, king's cross station. i hope that feeling doesn't wear off for a long time, because i plan to be here for a while...
