day seventeen: movie magic in real life

Thankful that I got to stay in a set of flats that appears in a James Bond film!
#thanks2 #day17

Didn’t realise it at the time, of course, but when I went to London back in July — I stayed in a flat on the opposite side of the river from MI6. So when I was watching Skyfall today I got to see the flat in the distance when M is standing on the vauxhall bridge looking at MI6!

I also happened to be in England during the start of the Olympics and got to watch the Olympic Torch go down the river right past the flat! At that time, they did put up the bunting. (Can you see the little blue, white & red flags strung up on the railings of MI6?)
