Marooned

Victoria memorial merman fountain
The Victoria memorial at the top of the Mall has a nautical theme with mermen spewing water into a vast stone basin. Seated poolside are 5 young visitors, no doubt impervious to the UK’s historical naval power referenced here and instead contemplating the complexities of the road systems roundabout.

visitors marooned in Olympic route road closure around Buckingham palace

After 2-3 weeks of crossing closures and the allocation of Olympic clearways, London streets are returning to normal. I’m surprised there’s not been an epidemic of mishaps as pedestrians clambered up and over obstructions, moving barriers and bollards aside, in order to cross where they wanted to go and avoid being re-routed much further afield.
