Ever Wonder?

Between our canal cruise and leaving for Italy, we had an afternoon in London. If you have ever wondered why the world has become what it has, I give you four examples.

We first visited the Coulthard Gallery – known widely as the finest small gallery in the world.

As we walked the streets we saw a number of confusing sights.

Now, before you get all disappointed with the photo, please let me explain. This fits into the theme of this blog – Ever Wonder? We were all waiting to catch the ferry from “downtown Venice” to the mainland on our last day and I was sitting at a small cafe enjoying another wonderful cup of espresso when the woman in the middle of the photo walked by. In the olden days women would not be caught dead doing major make-up work outside of the bathroom/washroom/make-up room. Not this Venetian woman. She stopped – not once but twice, to pull out her mirror and apply whatever she applied and then striding off to work – it was 8:30am.
