Dubai's Desperate Housewife

Trials and traumas of a full-time mum in Dubai

The Shard

leave a comment »

So the children and I are on a train going through London Bridge station. If you crane your neck (or your BlackBerry) out of the window, you can see London’s finest skyscraper, The Shard.  At 308 metres high, it’s the tallest building in Western Europe.

Titchy Shard taken through train window... I can see what DS meant

In the seat behind us on the train, a father tells his toddler daughter, “Look darling! There’s The Shard! Look how big it is!” Daughter isn’t convinced.

DS looks out of the window, then looks quizzically at me. Finally, he pipes up to the carriage, “That’s not big! You should see Burj Khalifa!”
