Just walking to work from Liverpool Street, passing a nightclub with a laminated sign bearing the Metropolitan police coat of arms  and reading 

  "In conjunction with the Metropolitan Police facial recognition technology is in operation in this nightclub."


WTF!!!!!

(this is from memory and I'll get a photo of it next time i go past)

Piozzo (CN) Italy

Le Baladin is a wonderful pub/ restaurant / brewery, go out of your way to get there : you may need to book unless you want to hang around outside and look like a bunch of tourists (as we did)

We had the Stinco alla Birra, which was
significantly nicer than it sounds...!


Stinco di maiale brosato con la nostra birra e con marmellata di ciliegie, fruiti de bosci e spezie...

A mouth-wateringly tender slow cooked pork shank in Baladin's own beer, cherry jam, fruits of the forest and spices.... The only drawback - the lack of a draught session beer . The weakest was pushing 5% and the rest were tastily but head-hurtingly over that.

seen in Barolo (CN) Italy.

A Smart car with Florentine number plates.

Not so rare you might think?

However this one is covered in real* leather.

Yes, leather, honestly!
