Thames Festival

Cast your mind back cialis cheap to the 16th of September. This was the night I headed out with Scott and his crew to check out the Thames Festival down along the river. It stretched from Waterloo Bridge all the way along to the millennium bridge along the south side of the river. The main reason I had gone was because there was word of fireworks and I’m a BIG fan of fire works. We arrived after lunch to find samba bands practicing by the national theatre and this really set the mood for the rest of the evening.. I found my first good pie outside the Tate modern – A Bristolian pie no less with mash and mushy peas with gravy. Superb. I have been really surprised at the limited availability of pies and their general crapness but this one really made a good representation of all that was good in a pie.. It was almost as good as a Tiger from harry’s café de wheels in Sydney but then perhaps it’s the ambiance that only sitting by the most beautiful harbour in the world can bring to the eating experience.. but I digress.

So as we ate our food we watched people attempt tricks on a trapeze someone had set up and waited for the parade to start. At 7pm we grabbed a spot on the Blackfriers Bridge and from then on it was non stop until 9pm. The dancing was impressive. Samba bands and dance groups had gathered from all over England and were shaking their groove things and bringing out the inner Brazilian.

I have some great photos which I will put up as I was using Binjie’s swish Digital SLR. The delay was negligible and the zoom impressive! Mental note start researching Digital SLR’s.

I forgot to add that the fireworks were genuinely impressive and the trip was all worth it. 🙂
