A Palin sighting? by psemerson on 14 June 2004 8:16am
 
So there I was in London on 4 June, just coming out of a Post Office near Maiden Lane, and I look up and ... I see this fellow walking down the middle of the street, and it's Michael Palin.

Well, I think it was Michael. I'm not the type of person to run up to someone and ask, "Aren't you (fill in the blank here)?" But, if it wasn't, it was an incredibly clever replica.

My question here: Does anyone have any information that would discount this? Is he really somewhere else in the world? Anyone know?

It did make for the highlight of my visit to London, and it's impressed several people.

Michael's office say it could well have been him.

Isn`t walking in the middle of the street a bit dangerous?

Even though it's a busy area in London, it was a sidestreet that didn't get much traffic. If he hadn't been walking in the street, I probably wouldn't have seen him.
