A short stop in London, some snapshots. The focus mode was wrong on my camera, it was too late when I realized it. Pictures might be soft, however my memory remains clear.

匆匆经过伦敦,一些浮光掠影。相机对焦模式设定有误,发现时已经太迟,不走回头路。相片或许模糊,而记忆,却清晰。



Approaching UK. There is near shore wind farm, visually spectacular, seen from above.

英吉利海峡,近岸的水面上有风车阵列,整齐而壮观。




Thames River. Old glories and new proud flooding onto my face.

泰晤士河。多少峥嵘岁月迎面而来。




A restaurant called The Shakespeare. The Germans have a saying "Du bist was Du ißt", meaning "You are what you eat".

餐厅名曰莎士比亚。

I did not want to walk too long in the chilly winter evening, went back to my hotel through the Victoria street. There are quite a few East Asian restaurants in the Victoria street. I was delighted.

冬寒料峭,手足冰凉。不愿在外面多作停留,从维多利亚大街走回旅馆。维多利亚大街上有不少东亚食肆。觉得十分亲切。








The Victoria street has just experienced some large-scale modernization in the recent years. A large part of the street is in a contemporary architectural style. However I found such a red telephone booth in a side street. Oh nostalgic and surreal!

维多利亚大街近年经历轰轰烈烈的升级改造,街上的新建筑风格大多是现代前卫的玻璃外墙,有不规则却简洁的几何空间造型。街旁的一条岔道上还有这样一间红色的电话亭。感觉瞬间穿越时光隧道,又仿佛是电影里的布景。 电话亭对面是一间德国餐厅 “慕尼黑板球俱乐部”。




Beautiful light from the Buckingham Gate in the evening. Futuristic as a whole.

Buckingham Gate 的灯光很美丽。




Cardinal Place in evening, with charm of the lights.

夜色中的 Cardinal Place。







Right opposite to this bold contemporary building, there is a fruit stand!

街边有卖水果的小贩。冬天居然有樱桃,他说是南美洲来的。买了一磅,带回旅馆。





The building at the cross of Buckingham road and Victoria street was formerly the hall of Victoria Railway Station. Now it is a hotel. Staff there are very friendly.

白金汉宫路和维多利亚大街交接处的这幢建筑,以前是维多利亚火车站,现在是一间四星级旅馆。员工十分热情好客。





There is a Chinese restaurant "Grand Imperial" in this building. They serve Cantonese dishes, also dishes of Shanghai style.  The interior of this Chinese restaurant is very elegant, as well as the dress and manner of the staff. A very decent place.

旅馆的一楼,是一间名为 “喜粤” 的中餐馆,英文名 Grand Imperial。主营广东菜,也有上海菜。员工大多是中国人,能讲纯正广东话,普通话和上海话。





And their food is just authentic, beautiful and tasty.  A perfect warm up for my soul, in this chilly winter evening.

菜肴品质很好。何以忘忧?唯有美食。








谢谢阅读,下次再见。
