Trying to escape from Charing Cross Station.

A Tejas barff site, a little past it's best.

  • The toe-rag that wees up against the back of The Strand Palace hotel and does n't flush the pavement after. (at it again last week in broad daylight).
  • The huge piles of dried barff out side the "Tejas" bar in Covent Garden that you have to thread your way through to get to the office.
