London Stories #1

Posted by cybertoad on 09/26/2003 in europe, uk |

I’ll start you off with some general photos from London. I divided the rest into specific sites we visited but these were just general shots around town that I took. I have added captions and identified as many as possible. Enjoy!

London: General Photos

Big Ben at night A few comments:

— We mastered the London Underground subway system and British Rail. We have also learned the city of London better than most Londoners.

— Along the same lines, don’t ask Londoners for directions. They can’t give them because they often don’t know themselves.

— Near the Clapham Junction subway station is a wonderful little restaurant called Fish in a Tie. Highly recommended. Great prices.

— The Portobello Road Market was an unexpected highlight of the trip! We went the Saturday before we left and bought all of our souvenirs + more there. Wonderful weather made it even more enjoyable!

— The Texas Embassy Cantina is a fun place for us Texans (decent frozen margaritas too and great bartenders).

Wagamama is a not-to-be-missed noodle house (thanks for the suggestion Mike).

— It’s fun to get lost in the Soho area.

— An original Mini truly is tiny inside!!

David Blaine looked like crap after only 5 days in his box (I have pictures of him). No, we did not throw eggs at him.

— Susan and CJ are great to travel with… looking forward to going to Boston with them next month. This is my favorite groups shot!

I’ll leave more comments on my other London entries…
