It has been a long, glorious day north of the river, exploring the old docklands. That area is becoming so gentrified, with multi-million pound blocks of flats being built all over the place, it’s crazy. Part of a project called the Royal Docks, dozens of new ten-storey-tall buildings are going up, equipped with trendy cafes and gyms, and set between stunning new parks. It makes me wonder again whether the same thing is happening in the rest of the country, or is it being left behind while London gets all the investment. Mind you, I was out so long I totally forgot a test match was being played, but having just checked the score, I see that I was right to do so.
