Things I have decided are better in London: Tea, Cider, Subways/"The Tube", Special K Red Berries Cereal
Things I don't like in London: no air conditioning, sales people, currency (not a fun surprise when I check online banking)
Mysteries of London: Seriously, what does "Cheers" mean?!? Why is it a maze to find bathrooms in restaurants? Why does the Tube close at midnight? Why am I not rich enough to buy everything at Harrods??
Things I learned today: Bloody Tower in Tower of London was named for the heirs to the throne that Richard III put up there and mysteriously disappeared. St. Paul's survived WWII because the Nazis used it as a landmark when flying over London because they didn't have radar. Even if Google weather says its supposed to be 70 and nice, bring an umbrella and jacket. If you got to Starbucks, say your order is to go and you don't have to pay tax. Harrods has a magazine (which I bought). Fire of London was September 2, 1666. People in London like to give things nicknames, Millenium Bridge = Wibbly Wobbly Bridge, Financial Building = Crash Helmet Building, Tower of London Guard = Beefeaters, etc. At Clink Prison, they higher status you had, the better and higher up your cell was. South Bank was the Vegas of Medieval London. There are more American banks in London than in Manhattan, NY (because of time zones, easier to do financial trading here). London Bridge is not pretty, the original is in Arizona somewhere.
