London in the Rain - 18th November 2004

There are two trips to London, in the space of two days. The first is to drop some phones off for some big Analysts' Demonstration, whilst the second is for Qualcomm Europe's All-Hands meeting. After the meeting, there's a bit of time to wander around a very wet London - the reflections of neon lights on the wet pavements perhaps wouldn't be out of place in a Ridley Scott film. There's also a brush with the law, as a couple of Rozzers wander over to see what Nosher's up to when he's observed taking photos at Liverpool Street Station. Apparently, in the paranoid police state of Britain, even taking photos of a station requires "a permit". To their credit, the Fuzz were quite civil about it, only wanting to see what photos had been taken, rather than insisting on an overnight stay in a cell and a swift interrogation courtesy of MI6. In between, there are a few photos of perhaps the most dramatic sunset clouds Nosher has ever seen; reminiscent of the clouds that surround the invading alien ships in Independence Day
