The Gherkin “Pickle?!” is I think the nicest building in London. This picture has been taken from my office. My colleagues told me that at the begining English people didn’t like it because it looks like a big dil**!

The Gherkin is today one of most important symbols of London.

Because of the flower this building of The City seems bigger than it actually is. It’s maybe how an ant sees us…
