A monsterous mechanical mammal lumbered its way through the center of London last week.
It was really an amazing site. The puppeteers moved the elephant's head side to side, spraying the massive crowds with water from the mammoth's trunk. Apparently the pachyderm also pisses but I was fortunate enough to miss that shower. It reminded me of the
The story has something to do with a sultan trying to chase a girl from his dreams. So he gets a time traveling elephant (what else?) to track her down and follow her throughout time (and the streets of London).
The parade went on for four days but we caught the grande finale, when Jumbo finally catches up with the girl. And then makes out with her...
The girl is placed inside a wooden rocket and set off skyward. I luckily caught the exact moment the elephant's brain exploded all over the crowd of young children...
It's fantastic to see the London government and police force willing to put so much time and money into art and culture for the masses. My friend mentioned also that there was no visible sign of gaudy sponsorship of any kind.
Here are some shots from the end of the day. Sunset over Buckingham Palace. 'Night Queenie.

Went shopping at IKEA a few weeks ago to spruce up the pad. Found this lovely item- the BLECKA. Apparently my last name is the Swedish furniture equivalent of two sturdy hooks for miscellaneous items. The BLECKA doesn't even come with screws. One could say Blecka has a few screws loose.
I'll be posting some pics from my Barcelona trip later this week.
