It was a pleasantly balmy afternoon today; the air was warm, with a cool breeze.

Apropos of nothing, Queensway in Bayswater seemed to have a vaguely mediterranean and leisurely feel; it reminds me a bit of various places in Australia by the sea, for some reason.

Current Music:
Sigur Rós - Svefn-g-englar

Queensway reminds you of places in Autralia because it's swarming with bloody Australians!

Actually, I didn't see any, nor any Australian establishments (i.e. Walkabout and their ilk). I did see various Middle Eastern restaurants and a Russian shop, though.

It may be seasonal, some kind of herd migration.

Nice part of London BTW; just out of the plutocratically-expensive end of Bayswater and Notting Hill, still a civilised distance from Ladbroke Grove. And, as you say, quietly cosmopolitan.

Yes; it's also two tube stops down from where I work, so possibly my best opportunity in wrestling a National Insurance number from the maw of the British bureaucracy without taking leave to do so.

There seem to be a lot of Antipodeans (Australians/Kiwis/Saffas) in Shepherd's Bush, mingling with the numerous Poles and undoubtedly driving the indigenous Muslims' property values down.

I believe I walked past it. Perhaps I'll go there after work sometime.
