One Year!

Hello, London, you sure do look familiar. Could you have a twin named New York City? Oh wait, never mind, the Summer Olympics will be here this time next year. London: 1. New York City: 0

As the city preps for the games, the, apparently annual countdown celebrations, ensue. I happened upon one such party hosted by the Mayor of London at Trafalgar Square this afternoon.

I intended to visit the British Museum this afternoon and one wrong turn found me celebrating with the locals. I decided to cross the Thames River via the Jubilee Bridge to get a sense of the city. I came to the conclusion that clouds or not, this is a beautiful city.

    • Totally agree. I would love to come back to London during the games to see the city in action.
