Firewords and another cemetery


4th of July Fireworks  -  Los Angeles

On the 4th of July flew from LA to London where we've been for the last few days, back in our old Finsbury Park neighborhood. This time we're much closer to our favorite halva place, Kofali Hot Nuts. The first day we bought a 2 lb block and have been working on it since. Also since arriving in London we've taken some good walks.

For our first outing, needing a good walk to survive the stupor of  jet lag, we went to Kensal Green Cemetery. Nice place to visit. It's a charming mix of history, ruin and repair. Along with some 65,000 others, some English notables are laid to rest there including Charles Babbage, often referred to as the "father of the computer" and playwright and Nobel Laureate Harold Pinter.

I loved the video taken through the airplane window. You might has well have been standing atop a hill looking down on some primitive encampment in the midst of a victory celebration after battle.

Great pic of you. Very evocative photo.

Yes. We were both shocked at just how many fireworks were being set off all over town. "Primitive encampment" is right. It's odd to say the least.

As for the other photo, thanks. I'm there for scale. :)
