Straddling different timezones

and standing on own feet in different hemispheres, albeit confortably. But for how long? only time will tell...

At zero longitude, Greenwich

Sea change

Snow, for a change. For the first time in 70years, snow in London during the month of October.

An invitation for a disaster

Seen here, are the posters that were used to advertise the new ship, the largest one ever- Titanic. Though the ship was never moored at Liverpool, it was registered by the White Star Line at Liverpool.

Evil designs- Imperialism or its history?

The worst 'ism' this world has been through. But, the museum only mentions WWI through Iraq. Selective communication, some say...

Imperial War Museum, Manchester

Tracing the route: Manchester to Liverpool

The first ever railway route in the world, after nearly 180years of fascination.

An invitation to mix with the 'well-heeled '

I got an invitation to visit 'The Lansdowne Club' for an evening party and I jumped at the opportunity. The location, apart from serving as an insight into the customer behavior, also has a fabulous history unknown to most of my co-participants. Technically, this place is the ex-White House.

"In 1782, Shelburne, the Prime Minister, concedes independence to the United States in the Treaty of Paris, drawn up with Benjamin Franklin in the Round Room".

This is the sort of place where the waiters wear Armani while serving Champagne with Beluga Caviar. The fried prawns, they served, just melted in my mouth.

...in the eye of the beholder

I got a free ride on the London Eye. Even the famous British weather cleared itself up to gift me a spectacular view of London for the very first time.
