London United/Divided/Deserted?

On the way to dim sum

Went out this evening to have some dimsum with my old friends from my last job and one of the few times I've been out the West End in the evening since the attacks.

On the DLR, I noticed an Asian guy with a rucksack on the seat next to him strangely tagged "Security Checked". It didn't look quite like an official airport security tag, but something much cruder - perhaps from an office. Maybe it was an airport tag. Who knows?

Then changing at Oxford Circus, a tube pulled in, right in front of a cross platform Evening Standard poster......

Getting off at Piccadilly Circus, London seemed strangely deserted to me. Admittedly it was a Monday night, but at least it meant we could have our pick of seats at
Ping pong dim sum (Give it a try - it's a poor man's/cheaper version of the truly wonderful Yauatcha - Ping pong does huge delicious cocktails for a fiver, food not quite as amazing as Yauatcha's for the price, but certainly pretty good - read more about the restaurant on my new personal blog).
