The best part of London is people watching. Nice to see chicks be chicks with high heels and skirts. Fashions can get wild Always include a play in your London trip. London is already getting serious about the 2012 olympics. Cranes and security checks everywhere. 2011 might be a great time to visit london. People do crazy stuff to earn money around the London Eye ferris wheel. Brits don't get in line they que. Brit lines are long but move really fast security and all. 85% of the cars could never get by our safety standards. Why the brits are so paranoid about global warming is beyond me. They put us to shame. The weather is not partly cloudy to a brit. It is sunny intervals. London is the World but Stockholm is Sweden. You can live in London and never have an English friend. Both countries suck at food. Spend your money on cast ales, fish and chips, and pickled herring. (with ales of course) England is a great place to send your kid to college. The drinking age is 18, no need for a car, public drinking is allowed. No DUI or DWI fears. The swedes are liberal but unlike ours they aren't pretentious overbearing pr!cks. No bike helmets and their kids jump off cliffs in the fjords. They also profile at the airport. Every muslim looking person was taken aside for a full body scan. They also don't allow anchor babies. damn nice people though. Nothing finer than seeing a Swedish girl riding an old fashioned bike with a chain guard, kick stand, and a basket in a dress with her purse slung over her shoulder going to work. And she ain't wearing a friggin bike helmet. The Vasa Museum is one of the finest museums I've been in. I'm going back to Sweden someday but I'm going to find the real Swedes. They aren't paying 20 bucks for a hamburger. Most of both countries would have fits with our ADA. The last place you want to be in a wheelchair is London. I kind of admire they didn't spend a trillion dollars so 1% of the population can have full access. The biggest difference between us and them is we are a country built on lawsuits. Lawyers have f@cked us so bad in this country. Mind the Gap is my new catch phrase for possible pitfalls in life.
