I Love London

After a couple of posts feeling a little disillusioned about the state of affairs last week, I thought I would talk about how much I love my city.

Even though parts of London have gone up in flames, I still love this place, and am always happy to take people around and see how excited they get to see the sights, and ask me to take their pictures somewhere that we all take for granted, like telephone boxes, the underground and the big red buses.

I love how London is separated into so many different places with its own life and culture. If you see one part of London, then you have only seen one part of London.

There's the political side of Westminster.
Notting Hill and Portobello Road.
Walking the cobbled streets of Covent Garden and standing in the Piazza and listening to classical music.
Business and skyscrapers in Canary Wharf.
Beautiful architecture in Cathedrals, Churches, Bridges, and Palaces.
Camden Town.
Sitting and watching the world go by on the steps of Trafalgar Square.

I love London and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.



In other news, I have given myself until tomorrow evening to finish my story and send it to my editor.
Wish me luck!

And before I forget I wanted to wish a very Happy Independence Day to all my Indian friends. Especially to those of you still over there, I hope you are going out and celebrating!

Happy Independence Day!

London is definitely on my must-see list. I wish I could attend the Olympics in 2012! It's going to be an exciting summer for you Londoners next year.

You're all in my thoughts and prayers and I hope things are settling down!

My friends are going to London in October, and I am jealous.
