The following are some scenes captured around town… it shouldn’t be too hard to guess the Ninja Turtle’s next destination.

By now it must be painfully obvious which city this is. If not, here's Nelson to help

LONDON!

It's like New York

It’s a little like New York

But a bit posher

And a little like Paris

But ultimately very English anyway

Sadly, the Ninja Turtle was not permitted to take photos in Westminster Abbey, where she spent a good few hours visiting, but she promises to have spent quite a good long time hanging out at the awesome Poets Corner, where some famous writers were either buried or commemorated. She found a whole parade of famous men – Chaucer, Johnson, Dickens, Kipling, Burns, Wordsworth, Milton, Keats, Shakespeare, Byron, Carroll, Eliot, Auden and Wilde… sadly, the women only included Austen and the Bronte sisters. Shelley wasn’t even Mary Shelley, but her mister, Percy Shelley. The most important question is: where are Adams (Douglas) and Wodehouse?! This is an outrage. Otherwise, Westminster Abbey was quite nice, full of dead kings and queens and a garden only open on Tuesdays through Thursdays.

Two final images to wrap up the post on London:

Hero or villian?
