Life in London - Take Two - Touching Down

Reaching the house, we were pleasantly surprised. 
Front of the house

It was a huge house, with 4 bedrooms on the second floor, and an attic that spans the whole top floor. Each floor has a washroom, with bathtubs on the 2nd and 3rd floor. 

On the ground floor, there is a kitchen, and a washing area extending behind the kitchen. There are 2 other rooms on the ground floor -- a huge carpetted living-room that's empty except for a couch, and another dining room with a dining table and 5 chairs. The dining room extends into a back yard. The backyard is almost as big as the house. There are 2 wooden sheds behind.

The same view, but I managed to capture a rainbow!

It was almost 7pm, can you believe it??

The exact same view with a lower exposure, check out the rays from the clouds! :)

The street our house is on

While we were still happily engrossed in photo-taking and unpacking, YC had to chase us out of the house because it was almost 7pm (althought it looked like 4pm).

Mailbox by the junction

Yes, it was raining, and while we were risking our DSLR, Francis is happily using his new digital compact camera

YC tying his laces. Doesn't he look hip?

The Streatham common just beside our estate
We wanted to head to Double Negative's office at Shaftesbury, but the ticketing machine at our national rail station had closed, leaving a ticket dispensing machine. That promptly broke down after we tried to operate it (it wasn't a user error, I promise!). We had no tickets to go into central London, so we ended up finding a place to eat at a Chinese restaurant. 

After eating, we went back home to unpack our stuff.
