Take your pick. St. Paul's,...
Take your pick. St. Paul's, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Westminster Palace, Trafalgar Square, Buckingham Palace, St. James's Park, Harrods, London Eye all bring back fond memories. Don't forget the museums: the Museum of Natural History, National Gallery, Tate Modern, and the grand dame of them all, the British Museum. These venerable places remind you of the burgeoning history that lies behind every facade, on every street, around every corner. And as if it isn't enough, the younger, lighter, hipper side of London is no less fascinating: the open markets at Covent Garden, the theater district, Notting Hill, Leicester Square -- day or night, the ever-crowded pubs, the relentless party crowds, the throngs at Piccadilly Circus, I can go on and on. Maybe it's because I have an impressible mind, but maybe it's simply this: London is the most exciting metropolis in the world! This is a toss-up, either eating outdoors on the cobblestone sidewalk at Covent Garden while a rocker crooned 80's hits, or sitting by the lit fountains at Trafalgar Square while dusk fell around us. Riding the London Eye ranks up there, too, but for a completely different reason :)
Go to the city
If you haven't been to the City before, try to go there at lunch time. Then you can see all the investment bankers rushing from their desks to the neares sandwich shop, grabbing some food and then returning to their desks immediately.
It is very interesting to see how much pressure and dedication they seem to have when you see them almost jogging across the streets. Here you can experience the fast pace in the European heart of banking. It's definitely worth a visit. If you want to go there take the Central line to Liverpool Street or the Northern Line to Moorgate. Then you are right in the middle of it!
Trying visiting the Madam...
Trying visiting the Madam Tussaud's. Did manage to take some pitures of my favourite singers like Beatles, Elvis, Mil Gibson and All the President of United States!!! Manage to capture to Royal family too into my album.
Getting Your Hair Cut In London
While in London, I decided to have my hair cut. First I went to a small place near the hotel. What a disaster! I was in tears. My daughter Jill suggested that I go to a famous place such as Sassoon's, which I did.
Sassoon is known for its structural and asymmetrical cuts. They were alarmed when they saw the "butchery" that had happened. But, they came to my rescue, and the photo shows that they were able to "save the day". It was the beginning of my wearing my hair short with the ears showing.
So, if you plan to have your hair cut, go to a well known place.
