Why I love London

The strangest thing happened on the way to church today. I fell in love with London all over again. I know that it is a fun and dynamic city, but walking through Hyde Park reinvigorated my love. As we walked toward the Italian Gardens, we saw several women in the hajib playing soccer. It certainly wasn't something one sees everyday, but it sure does wonders to destroy the 6 o'clock news version of Muslim women.
Then heading back toward church, I saw this new Lamborghini Mercielago. Such a pretty car. It is like a bullet on wheels.
You'd be hard pressed to see those two things in a year where I'm from, much less in the span of 20 minutes. Combine that with Hyde Park, wonderfully cheap public transport and a fabulous church and I'm hooked.
