"East End Girl" - Cock Sparrer, 1997

Tonight's my last night as an East End girl, here in London. I head back home to John and the North Oxfordshire countryside after class tomorrow evening.

I watched "EastEnders" on BBC 1 tonight as I ate my room service dinner. Each eposide begins with a map of one of the the curvy parts of the River Thames, on the east side of London. Here's a screenshot of what I'm talking about...



Watching the intro, I suddenly realized that just to the right and down a bit from the "C" in BBC is exactly where I'm staying! How cool is that?

Here's Multimap image of the location of my hotel. Take a look for yourself...

Oops...the red circle around my location didn't copy. Oh well...I'm just to the left (west) of the "Exhibition Centre", north of the Royal Victoria Dock. That's the waterway I was standing next to when I took the photo of the Millennium Dome and Canary Wharf two days ago.

It's been interesting staying here, but I miss my "husby" and wanna go home!

Goodnight from East London!

Cool! I LOVE London and have really pleasant memories of my short time there. I'd love to go back some time.

Funny, so you are part of the Eastenders ? Unfortunately I only watched it occasionally when I were in London, here in Waterloo I have not often the occasion. But I love it as it reminds me of my visits to London..
