On Saturday, I was walking around Covent Gardens Market Place, one of my favorite places in London, and I saw a flash mob. Not kidding. It was the weirdest thing. I think I saw it towards the last little bit of it but still long enough to watch and get a quick picture. There were all these younger people standing completely still in random places facing all different directions. They were serious faced with no breaking character at all. Then after watching for a couple minutes they all just fled at exactly the same time. No count downs, no signals, just going from complete stillness to movement in a seconds time. They all walked away in different directions, still serious faced, until they were all out of sight. And then it was over. So cool. I am glad that I got to see it. :) If I would have got there just a few minutes later, I would have missed it.
