Arriving in Richmond at the green beds of the calmly moving Thames you could be in a different part of Europe. The main bridge has a very Italian feel, only the dark grey clouds bring you back to the British island. This musician probably was inspired by the Beatles song Come Together “He had hair down to his knee, got to be a joker he just do what he please…” because the Rasta you see tied around his neck even passed the knees!
Richmond is a very rich area in western London. The only thing disturbing the idyllic suburbia are airplanes almost brushing the roofs when heading for Heathrow.The most amazing thing about Richmond is the Royal Park with herds of tame Red and Fallow deer roaming the largest enclosed space in London. You can walk up as close as a few meters without them getting disturbed by your presence or that of dogs.
Not all houses are as fine as you’d expect them to be around this area, but they surely have their charm.
