my london diary

january 2001

new years day starts with the annual westminster parade, one of these synthetic events i should hate, but i have to admit rather like.

its tacky and american, but some of the kids there are really great and its a big day for them, and sometimes there is a kind of crazy i like.

mortlake in january is cold and pretty bleak, but a little winter sun at times helps
hidden in the roman catholic churchyard, down a driveway and through a small door to the left of the church is the tomb of sir richard burton, explorer and writer, carved like an arab tent, but more a fishtank as you climb the short ladder and gaze through thick glass to where he has now spent many more than 1001 nights with his wife

wembley seemed worth another visit, if only for the decaying ruins of the palace of industry than the threatened towers of the stadium

spelthorne, like the world is normally two thirds covered by water, but flooding has increased this. also has more traffic and pollution than anywhere in surrey, though I can't stop thinking of it as middlesex

from richmond to isleworth on a fine sunny day. i swam here as a kid - no warning signs then, drank underage beer in the pub, was born a stone's throw away.

hackney wick is a throwback to a different age - when we had industry and needed canals to ship goods, but parts are changing

there are too many people and too many photographers at the chinese new year celebrations in soho, but somehow i keep on going
