Brian the Snail

Today's little bit of grafitti sparks a Magic Roundabout-fest. Located in the Seven Sisters Road, I've seen it there for the past 35 years, not sure whether it is meant to be Brian. Looking around for Magic Roundabout sites, I discovered there are some strange ones (what IS going on in that last photo?) but there are also normal ones.

Well this is obviously something of British culture I've never seen. Thanks for the link!

Holy crap that roundabout is insane!

I really like your pictures of London. Your beginner’s guide How to blog is very helpful.

I saw "The Magic Roundabout" and I immediately thought of Swindon, lovely Swindon. For those of us ('mericans) who are culture-challenged, which came first?

Thank you very much for the information about the roundabout in Swindon...I know we have to avoid that area now :) We spent a week in UK at the end of April (Tunbridge Wells) and the "classic" roundabouts were complicated enough for us.
Thank you too for this blog. I find it great and enjoy looking at it (nearly) every day. I've been to London maybe twice, when I was...younger, I really hope I'll come back again.
Funny the picture in your profile...there are other villages named "Le Ham" in France, did you know it ?
Have a nice day.
PS : Sorry for my bad English. I'm so sad I can't speak it fluently.

Scouter - Swindon came a long, long long time after anything else.

Lagan - glad you enjoy it, and no I hadn't realised there were others. I was recently in Trouville, saw the sign and had to detour. (BTW, your english is excellent)
