On The Vietnamese Bus

There's a bit of the Kingsland Road - which is up the way from Bishopsgate - known as the "Pho Mile" for the density of Vietnamese restaurants. The very wonderful Truc Lieu, who was part of the team until she wangled a job back in the West End, knew her way around Vietnamese food, so soon after we moved in to our new office, she guided us to her favourite on the Pho Mile - Tay Do - and we've been going back ever since, usually on a Friday lunchtime.

The trip starts on a 149 0r 242 bus at Bishopsgate..


 ...passes this odd sculpture, and this bridge...

 ... this bit of graffiti...

 .. and under the bridge for the Hoxton extension of the North London Line...


 ... and we get off at the stop after this bridge...


 ... have a throughly pleasant lunch, leaving few remains...


 ... catch a bus back on what looks like a suburban high street on a quiet April afternoon...


... pass the church and finish at Bishopsgate again.
