You will have noticed by now that it’s getting darker earlier by the day. And the weather is getting more miserable by the day too. Nothing can compensate for the fact that (unless your job causes you to be outdoors for a lot of the time during daylight) you are going to experience darkness, cold and wetness most of the time you are travelling to and from work. For the next six months or so anyway. It’s a depressing time of year and I can’t wait for the Spring.
Still, some places try to make you feel good by trying to recreate a kind of “tropical”, warm weather, feeling. Take The O2 for example. Formerly known as the Millennium Dome, this entertainment complex has it’s own wannabe equivalent of Leicester Square right outside it’s main entrance. Being there the other day for a show, and we couldn’t help but be captivated by the “hot springs” in operation in the square outside. Which incidentally isn’t square, but goes by the name of Peninsula Square.
(Taken with my cameraphone of course.)
The “hot springs” were a lot of fun!
