Preparation for Guests

London is getting a makeover in time for the 2012 Olympics. This fountain at Marble Arch is one of the many to benefit from extensive work in recent weeks. Doubling as an impromptu swimming pool this week as temperatures in the city soar to mid 30's.

Ditto. I could do with a dunk.

Hilda said...

No kidding, people are allowed to dunk themselves in your public fountains?

Looks lovely!

Good day, Mo! What a refreshing foto! I surprised to not see some people dangling their feet in the water from the edge. Ahhh!

It's so inviting!

Looks refreshing. Hard to believe those temps in London, particularly as I sit here in unseasonably cool New Jersey at 21 degrees.

There should be more of those even if the really warm days are just a memory most of the year.

OMG! The last time I was in London (a few months ago) the traffic, horrendous on a normal day, was doubly horrendous because half the streets are being torn up with construction in preparation for the Olympics. If you've never been to the UK and are used to American streets, you're in for a shock. British streets (and parking spots) are a good 50% smaller than their American counterparts.
