|...looking down Oxford Street...|
Either I leave behind my ID or my water bottle or my camera.
Today I had all three with me, and it was the camera that was giving me a lot of fun.
My best guess is that the flags I was seeing are in honour of the Jubilee coming up.

Here is the street that leads into Piccadilly. I am seeing all kinds of souvenirs to mark the event -- and most of them are adorned with the Union Jack. I saw it on a hat today, on a t-shirt, and on lots of the articles (bags, dishes, shoes) in the M&M store who were celebrating both the Jubilee and the chance to have the M&M logo on the same purchase.
I feel closely connected to the makers of M&M's having participated so often in making them a major player as far as sweets go.
