So, I'm off to London in the morning to see friends in Richmond in Surrey. They have kindly asked us up for the day as Saturday and Sunday is Doors Open London 2008. So what is Doors Open London? Much of London’s history is found in places not normally open to the public. Doors Open London allows locals and visitors from out of town to tour through these sites and learn from experts about their history and importance to the city.
The sites range from places of worship, to natural areas, to businesses and grand homes and estates. There is something for everyone to see and something for all to learn. Each year they try to improve the experience by adding new sites and this year they have 5 new sites that are sure to interest you. Doors Open London is the once-a-year chance to fully explore the city.
So there you have it, that's what I will be up to. The weather is set fair and for once that is something of an understatement as they have promised beautiful weather. I shall report back and hopefully take a few photos to share with you all.

OK today's photo is something of a departure for me, not the type of photo I usually take. From the south coast of Crete and in particular the town of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα), the only town on the south side of the island. In recent years there has been a lot of development on the outskirts of the town, much of the building very modern. I have always been taken by the clean stark lines against the clear blue sky so this last visit thought I would try and capture a few of them. Here is an aerial view of Ierapetra (Ιεράπετρα) and the surrounding area.

Like a sound you hear
That lingers in your ear
But you can't forget
From sundown to sunset
It's all in the air
You hear it everywhere
No matter what you do
It's gonna grab a hold on you
California soul, California soul

They say the sun comes up every morning
And if you listen oh so carefully
The winds that ride on the high time
Whistle in melody
And so the people started to sing
And that's how the surf gave birth untold
To California soul, California soul
