London

rain 18 °C

London is an exciting city and a place wher I feel very comfortable.....someone asked me the other day at breakfast what is my favourite place so far and I really can't say, because there is something I love about every place that I have been to, however if for some reason someone was going to say we are going to send you somewhere then I would probably say Rome, but London Paris Brussels would be right up there as well.
Yesterday I went to see the Tower Bridge and then the London Tower, both of these have such a rich history particularly the tower where people have been beheaded, people like Henry VIII lived there when it was used as a palace......all this stuff that I learnt about in English history at school all coming to life. I also went for a walk along the Thames and there was a cruise liner in so huge right in the middle of the city if you like....and also wa lked around the London Docklands area.
Today even though it was raining I went for a walk to Regents Park, it was so beautiful, a largish lake every where really green, ducks walking on the lawn and locals jogging, they have some very pretty flower beds they make me smile as most of the garden feature geraniums and I mentioned to one of the people I talk to at breakfast how they are almost a weed a home because they grow so prolifically (this person was from Devon) and she was saying that it is the thing to have in your garden here.
I caught the underground into London Central and went to the Dept store Harrods, I can say I have een there...had to stop myself from buying this really cool jumper priced at a cool 800 pounds and in the food section they had some yummy looking peaches for 31 pounds a kilo abd given current exchange rate makes the jumper about $1500 and the peaches $55.00 after that I went on to St Pauls chuch in London really beautiful but they didn't allow photos to be taken, then went for a cruise on the thames ...a lovely way to spend the day but I have to admit at the end of the day I feel a bit tired.
Have a five hour train trip tomorrow so that will be relaxing and give the ol legs a rest.
