Sit on Kamal Bulos' bench

Your author has no idea who Kamal Chaker Bulos was, but he was clearly a man with taste. A bench bearing his name stands on the hill near the Royal Observatory in Greenwich Park, and a plaque tells us that "He loved this place and shared it with those he loved". The view from the bench looks South North down the hill with a fine view featuring the Millennium Dome, One Tree Hill, Canary Wharf and the chimneys of Greenwich Power Station.

It's a view that deserves more than just a fleeting glimpse and thank goodness for Kamal and his family who have afforded us all a way to enjoy it properly. Bulos was born in August 1930, and died on 11th December 2005. The rest of the inscription reads "Forever remembered. Forever loved.". Truly a fine way for his family to remember him.
