Today was yet another shockingly nice day in England, so my friends Polis, Irene, Liz and I went to a farm in the city. I had no idea there was a farm just east of Canary Wharf, London’s financial district. It’s just off the DLR at Mudchute. The only thing I’ve ever associated with that station is the time Adrian fell asleep on the tube going toward Greenwich and when he woke up he was going the opposite direction and was back at Mudchute.
The first things we saw were a herd of sheep and two cows, and there were no gates or people to stop us from walking among them.
You almost forget you’re in the city until you look back and see the city’s tallest buildings.
Running animals (not from us!) …
Is it just me or does this pig look like she has really sharp nipples? A nearby sign warned us not to touch the pigs because they “have 44 sharp teeth and they will bite,” but I couldn’t stop looking at the chainsaw nipples.
I love this.

Then we went for a walk around the area.
