Well, I hadn’t been to London in a while and how it has changed! Its a big building site in the City but I understand most of these new buildings remain empty or will be empty when completed. For me, London has become a very modern and actually very nice city with all of that recent development.

However, it takes ages to get around the city. We took a cab from Tower Bridge to one of the railway stations and it took around 40 minutes and costs a small fortune. The driver did take us the scenic route though it would seem and I was able to get a look at Big Ben and Buckingham Palace en route…

I was hoping to make it over to Watkins Book shop but unfortunately, never had the time. Maybe next time…
