Michelin to the Albert Memorial.We spent the bulk of the day checking students into their flats. Nine of them were detained in Texas and won't arrive until tomorrow. Visions of sleeping in airport terminals danced through our heads, briefly. Poor lost souls.
Our first stop was the Michelin Tire Building. Who knew the Michelin Man was immortalized in Stained Glass on this Art Deco architectural wonder?
We headed down a cobbled path through Ennismore Garden Mews. Another cool old church was on the right, with a grand stone gate at the entrance. The inscription reads: Thy Word Hath Quickened Me. Such a great reminder, just there at the end of the walkway.
Next Jeff took this cool panorama shot of apartments lining an alleyway. We loved the color palette.
A few more blocks and we were at the Royal Albert Hall (and yes, I did verify that Queen Alexandra's is still there, just as I remembered it!)
And a perfectly suitable ending to our little 'adventure on foot.'
