Paul draws a napkin map of London.

    Newer Older

    For the benefit of my six-and-a-half-year-old, who was curious about where he lived, my friend Paul sketched a napkin map of London.

    The curvy line is the Thames. That's Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament to the left of the first curve. BP, above and behind, is Buckingham Palace. Note the flags, which tell Londoners whether or not the Queen is home. RP = Regent's Park. The three-legged square between Regents Park and Buckingham Palace is Paul's townhouse in Marleybone. (Posh!)

    The arrival of Japanese food terminated this exercise in geography.

      I read your tweet as “Paul draws a napkin on a map of London” and I thought it was an interesting twist but this is good, too.

      If you followed the Thames, all the way to the right, you'd arrive at my house - it's only two legged and definitely not in Marylebone.
