London - 2010


Just a couple pictures from a quick week-long business trip to London, UK, in October 2010. Unfortunately, brought along only the little Canon Powershot SD450 instead of the big camera, no room for binoculars, and little time away from meetings to see the sights. Weather was generally good, however, my hotel was right across the river from Big Ben, and did manage to wander over to the British Museum and some of the fabulous parks in the vicinity. Much less crowded than I'd expected, the food has certainly improved dramatically since my last visit almost 30 years ago, and quite safe despite the increased terrorist alert level that week.

After a quick visit to a small marsh, we spent a good part of the first day at the salt harvesting area of Samut Sakhon, before cooling off at an enviromental research park, and then heading on to Kaeng Krachan National Park.
