In spite of its faults, quirks and scary underground system London remains one of my favourite cities. I’ve been there a few times in recent years and every time I get off the train at Paddington I feel a rush of excitement as I return to ‘the big smoke’.
The last time I was there I decided to take a day to ‘be a tourist’, to hop aboard one of the open top buses and enjoy a three-hour tour of the best of London.
Sometimes it is nice to cave in and do the touristy things. After two years of going to London just to attend one event at one venue, it was nice to enjoy the city.
I’m looking forward to going back again soon, but I think the sensible thing to do would be to let all this Global Sport Game Thing We Don’t Have Legal Permission To Name hoo-haa die down first.
