The entire metropolis before me

I just got in from a good long walk. Today I decided to do some exploring up Shooters Hill behind Woolwich. I find the mix of cultures around there rather fascinating: Asian mixes with African, Victorian/Edwardian mixes with modern in a way I find utterly captivating. I was just following my nose, checking out the lay of the land near the old military academy, when, going down a road I hadn't been down before, I stumbled onto a view which took my breath away. This view made my jaw drop. Google Streetview doesn't really do it justice, but I musthave been able to see for miles from there: all of London lay before me, northward into the distance, perhaps even to the fields beyond. It was staggering, and reminded me why I go out exploring. I found several views like that in that area; here is another. I'll definitely be taking L up there to show her soon. Finding views like that only makes me love this city even more.
