Words can’t tell all what it’s like being in London during the month of February. There’s supposed to be less tourists, yet every thing we go see is CROWDED. I can’t imagine what it would be like here in the summertime!
London feels a lot like when I visited New York, or even Mexico City… it’s big, there’s a lot of people going all sorts of places, and even though you’re lost all the time you always know what to do next. However, hands down: London has the fanciest architecture I’ve ever seen.
This is a picture of “Big Ben” which is the clock tower at one end of the Parliament building. You may also recognize it from the Disney movie “Peter Pan” when they first start flying out of London towards Neverland.
And this is me having some tea and biscuits. Yes, it is truly magnificent to enjoy this traditional afternoon delight while staying in London.
You always have your choices of tea, but the currant fruit tea is most preferred during this time of year.
And now here I am with my beautiful neice. Those who are observant will notice her ice skates. She’s actually pretty good at it. I was totally impressed. All the girls ice skate, and I think they inherit the skill from their mom.
A typical London street. Even the movies can’t make this stuff up. It’s like this everywhere, and I’m already getting used to it. By the way, I went car shopping with my brother yesterday and he test-drove a Volkswagon. Driving on the LEFT side of the road is freakin HARD! You may think in your head all day to drive on the left, but as soon as you start driving, habit takes over and when a car comes, you start to freak out because your head’s like “you’re driving on the wrong side!!!” Haha… it was a trip for sure 🙂
This is me and my bro walking the kids to school… You can’t see the kids in this picture (taken by my sister) but it’s a pretty cool shot.
My niece is so cute because she is able to keep up with all of us adults walking down the street, but her legs have to move super fast to do it, so I decided to give her a break for a bit 🙂 I think she had fun seeing the world from a different height. She really is cute, and yes, I just used the word cute.
This guy was helping guests at The Ritz in London. This picture does not do justice to the cool outfit he was wearing, but here it is anyways.
Ofcourse, what would London be if it didn’t still have old-fashioned telephone booths at every corner, and old-fashioned taxi’s? We spotted both together and got a sweet picture of it. Imagine all this, and all the buildings and proper accents all around you.
And finally, some serious breakfast eating fun. I guess I’m a bad example, but it really could be worse. We could be standing on Lava.
Oh yeah, I think she wins the contest for longest and strangest. This may or may not be one of the reasons we don’t get out until the afternoon sometimes.
