London: 1. First impressions
20:23 – Landing at the Luton Airport. Nothing fancy. I do not feel anything in particular. It’s just a common, usual airport.
21:32 – Passing by my first target 221b Baker Str. Now this is almost surreal, having in mind that I began The Adventures of Sherlock Holmes two weeks ago, not knowing that I’ll be in London on such a short notice. What you can see is a bad attempt at a shot ‘by night’.
22:00 – Heading to the nearest supermarket. It’s late, I am jet-lagged and not up for going out to have a dinner.
23:00 – After plenty of time spent on reading maps and underground station names, here we are – just a 12 minutes walk from our hotel.
23:20 – Okay, it took us more than 20 minutes. :))
23:43 – I am fighting the WiFi connection and my wordpress app to give you a tiny but prompt information about London.
The city is simply marvellous with its picture-perfect suburbia houses and buildings. People are friendly and helpful; from every ethnicity and colour, mostly young, artistic and vital. At 23 in the evening the streets are full with youngsters, going to pubs, for a walk or just chatting cheerfully.
But what do I know?! It is late in the night and the sites worth seeing are scheduled for tomorrow.
Welcome to jolly old England.
I’m sure you have your own things to do but: if you fancy theatre then try ‘The Globe’.
Museum? The Natural History Museum is one incredible building – wildlife photography exhibition starting there on 19th Oct is stunning, probably entrance fee of £9/10 to the exhibition although museum itself is free entry.
The Museum of London gives a marvelous look, through the ages, at that fantastic city you are in.
You’ll probably love Covent Garden although not my my cup of tea.
Have a great time.
Thank you! I will definitely try some of your sugestions!
