Everyone In The World......

Whenever I was in London I always spent a fair amount of time sitting on the steps below the statue of Eros in Picadilly Circus. It's been said that if you sit there long enough eventually everyone in the world will walk past. Even though that's a bit of an exaggeration, it's true that Picadilly is one of the best places in the world for people watching.

On Sunday after the falling plate shoot Keewee and I headed over to Burlington to grab some polish sausages on a bun at Costco. Some of the Costco stores in the area have the tables for eating your food under a roof to protect you from the rain, but it's an unheated area, so you get cold sitting there eating your food. The Burlington Costco has the eating tables indoors in the main store building, right next to where everyone walks by from the check out stands to the doors to go outside to the parking lot. That means you don't freeze while eating, so you can take your time and enjoy your meal.

By now you are probably wondering how I started out at Picadilly Circus and ended up eating lunch in a Costco store. The link, of course, is that the Costco makes another great place for people watching. Costco does a lot of business, so there's a never-ending stream of people walking by. We watched folks of all colors and nationalities pass by, spike hair, unusual piercings, punks, goth, old, young, and everything in between. A Sikh walked by with his full beard and head gear, not exactly a turban ,but I don't know the correct name for it.

I wonder if everyone in the world is now bypassing Picadilly, and is shopping at Costco instead.....

It is a turban, they just wrap it a special Sikh way. :-)
