I am a native in this world And think in it as a native thinks

London




The view from our London office: Christopher Wren meets the Shard.

The beautiful weathervane is on St Anne and St Agnes church, one of many built or rebuilt by Wren after the Great Fire in 1666.

And the Shard is the new Renzo Piano skyscraper just completed south of the river.

I'm only in London a few days so I may never get acclimated enough to have anything intelligent to say about the dizzying jangle of old against new that the City has become.  I certainly don't tonight; just trying to stay awake past 6pm is enough of an achievement for today.
