Pomp and Ceremony


The annual event of the Lord Mayor's Parade took place on Saturday.  Despite the rain and cold wind thousands lined the street to witness this ancient event.  The square mile that is known as the City of London elects its own mayor, has its own set of riles and regulations remaining elite and separate to the rest of London.  However, it still makes for a fascinating spectacular to watch

As you said. Always fascinating.

It looks like the weather is exactly the same as it was two years ago when I watched the parade. Well, I watched until I had to go somewhere to dry off.

It certainly looks damp. The coats remind me of the oilskin dusters I've seen here.

What's a bit of wind & rain when you get to wear gear like that!!
