At first I considered these 'walking tours' somewhat absurd. A man carrying a camera wanders along the streets filming as he goes, revealing a city or whatever from the ground, as a tourist would see it.
Then I discovered I was hooked!
There are problems with these videos, one concerns London. Walking around London, and there are many of those as you will guess, involves meeting Londoners. These ignorant, rude people who walk into you as if you do not exist, cut in front of you, barge past you, and generally make me glad I am now in this wee market town, appear regularly on the videos. One other problem, the man with the camera will insist on turning the wrong way! I wish to turn to the left, he goes right, and there is nothing you can do about this!
However, for someone suffering Lock Down it is a window on the world, and they do cover a good part of the world now, and while you may wish them to walk down different streets or check the notices on old building more many of these are worth a look.
This half hour one covers the city of London. Clearly he was there on a Saturday as the place is quiet. Masses of blue suited smart people, they say, fill the area normally, making use of the pubs and clubs, cafes and grossly overpriced restaurants while seeking to do deals and make money. So many would be happier moving out and getting a life instead!
Once upon a time I had some knowledge of the streets, watching this glass fronted, disgusting tower block filled place all I had was neck ache! Far too many old buildings have gone, too many disgusting ones have arrived, though many from the late 19th century were pretty drab also. The more interesting ones, where you really have to look up to see carvings and insignia, were missed! Bah!
Worth a look for anyone who has been there or wishes to avoid entering the den of iniquity.
