happy friday!!!

>> Friday, January 22, 2010

Last year was my first EVER time in London. (See our self satisfied punams and the London eye in the photo.) What did I think of London? I absolutely loved it!!! I did not have any huge expectations, in fact I've never quite heard any good reviews of London from friends that have been. Here are some things I've heard as opposed to what I discovered:

1. People are rude - FALSE! People are lovely, funny, friendly and polite.
2. Girls are ugly - FALSE! They're very cute and stylish, and the wear the highest heels I've ever seen any group of girls wear. Much higher heels then in Manhattan too.
3. Guys are ugly - FALSE! I've seen tons of good looking guys in London. TRUST me.
4. English food is terrible - FALSE! English food is yummy first of all, secondly there is just about ANY kind of cuisine to be had in London.
5. Everyone gets totally smashed when they go out - True. Now that's the only one I do agree with. On Fridays abour 2pm everyone seems to be at the Pub and already in a drunken state.
6. Everything is super expensive - FALSE false and false!!! There are tons of shops for all kinds of pockets and most of the high street shops like your Zaras and such are actually cheaper in London. Then again, I'm also comparing it to Amsterdam where everything is crazy expensive.
London reminded me of Manhattan the way Manhattan wishes to be. London was bigger, cleaner, and more interesting.
I was impressed, and so I'm really pleased to be going there for a week. I'm there for some work meetings but hopefully I'll have a chance to do just a bit of running around for my own purposes!

Oh man I studied abroad in London and loved it- I thought the people were so nice, the city was so clean, and so safe! Such a wonderful experience! Can't wait to go back!
