From Oxford Street I paced south, fuelled on Diet Coke (this is a long walk if you don't know London). I headed into Mayfair and just wandered around. And then I found this place. Mount Street Gardens. Named for the mount built by Cromwell's civil war troops in the 17th century (you can still just see the rise in the earth here). What got me about this lovely garden was that i had never been there before. I have lived in London for twentyfive years (gulp!), but I have never come across this gorgeous and historic little corner. That's how incredible London is. It is inexhaustible. It never ceases to amaze. And that's why we're very fucking fond of it, you terrorist assholes.
