London I

I've been to London so many times and I fall in love over and over again... It might not be so fine to live there day by day, I know, but where it might be that place? Here? Hm, think again...


Guess what? It was raining almost all the time we've been there for the Direct Marketing Fair! You know... it was raining every single time I've been to London, and I still love it.


 The people are relaxed...


...enjoying even the tiniest ray of sunshine.

So are the doves, on the pier...

 ... watching carefully over the London Eye.


You shouldn't say I forgot the famous places, OK? Don't ask me what this square is, please!

Local attractions... 


Covent Garden's Market...

A lonely lady trying to have a quiet drink...

... but didn't succeed!

London is a very artistic city, as you can see!

At dinner you can serve a Bollywood menu, I wonder if they have any Indian music there?

This where it's supposed you'll start visiting this city!

And to return over and over again... 


Don't miss The London Eye, is more spectacular than any other in Europe!

The flowers are in bloom in any season, I bet on it, you'll see!


Another mandatory event, guard changing at Buckingham Palace!


Who's guarding this guy and what for??? 


In weekend we are big visitors of local fairs. That time: Portobello Market.


Again, the St. Paul Church is one of the most visited objectives in London, don't miss it!

View from the top of the church, in a very dark February morning...


London Tower in a less scary view...

The gorgeous London Bridge, remember it from Sherlock Holmes movie? Yes, the one with Jude Law and and Robert Downey Jr., when they did the performance of walking the distance from the bridge to Parliament in 1 minute. Underground. Fiction, yes.


 And, to visit some other places besides The British Museum, we tried this time the Natural History Museum, with its unbelievable architecture!


Look! What I've just told you?


We didn't wait for the sunny days, it was a busy time for us!
Tomorrow I'll show you some parks and some other little wonders. I already told you is London... through my eyes, don't expect a guide. If you need one, take me with you!

Will you be terribly upset if I tell you i didn't like London at all? for me, it was the least interesting getaway... I'm going again soon, maybe i'll change my opinion, but chances are slim. I just don't get London.

Maybe it was the company, the places you went, the bad mood... I would wander in London for months :).
Of course I'm not upset, I'm moving to Portugal! Yeeeey!
