Consequently, we went to London again last year. And this year.
One thing I like about London is the tube - it's so easy to travel even for tourists and you feel soooo cosmopolitan when you pass the ticket barrier with your oyster card and a "I don't give a fuck" attitude or when you roll your eyes because somebody stands on the left at the escalators (no offence, Marina *g*).
Another thing is its multiculturality.
And that the city is vibrant with activity.
And its interesting history.
And Shakespeare's Globe Theatre.
And ... I really could go on like this forever!
So here are some of the things we did this year:
|We stayed at a very nice hotel called "The Royal Horseguard" - it had a TV in the shower. I watched Scooby-Doo on it. However, the bedroom was somehow more comfortable for watching TV. But then again, I am just a commoner.|
|We visited Dr. Johnson's House - a real gem and definitely recommendable! Johnson's ideas about the imagination were part of my master thesis - I really think that he was a genius.|
We went to the theatre to see "Ladykillers" - very funny though the second act wasn't as hilarious as the first one.
|We also met Marina and Matt in London. Their hotel even featured gadgets that our hotel didn't: a bottle opener!|
We attended the Even Song in Westminster Abbey - to hear the choir in this gothic cathedral really was a sublime experience!
