The Wharf

One of the advantages of trekking all the way to Canary Wharf for work:

I just love being so close to the water, and I do like the ultra-modern feel over there. It's also fun to watch all the bankers congregating outside Canary Wharf station. I do wonder what kind of things they've been up to during the day, and how far removed it must be from the kind of stuff I've been doing. The most fun bit is going into the underground shopping centre linked to the tube station. The wide array of commerce there caters for every 'essential' for a busy working day (or night), such as sushi, Jo Malone perfume and L.K. Bennett shoes. On ground level, there's even a Carluccio's and various other posh eateries/ watering holes. With everything there, why even leave the wharf at all? Scarily, there are some people who scarcely do. Soon, they won't have to at all, with the hundreds of luxury flats springing up all over the place.
