The Gold Touch

After work I wandered down Holborn through Lincoln Inn fields past the impressive Kings College and down Fleet Street. Having no real plan I decided to head towards St Pauls because the dome looked so impressive and I had only work waiting for me at home. Once there it seemed a short stroll to the Bank of England and the museum. After a scintillating scanning of my person and possessions for dangerous or deviant metal objects I spend a pleasant half an hour wandering around in the free warmth and had immense fun picking up a real life gold bar. It was so much fun that I had to go back and touch it several times. I was under the mistaken impression that it was impossible to pick up but this proved unfounded although the act itself had the unpleasant side effect of a slight back ache. It’s good for a visit if you’re near Bank tube station and it’s not far to walk from the Tate Modern.
