Travels in Europe - London!

Well, first post of the new year.  Haven't really got any great new years resolutions or anything except maybe to get a job when I graduate in 6 months.  Fingers crossed! More uploads from my travels in Europe.  This time its London, and man do I love London.  It reminds me greatly of home (Hong Kong) in a weird way but still distinctly European.  Its undoubtedly the liveliest city I've been to in Europe so far, and thank god everyone speaks English! It makes all the difference when there's no language barrier.  You can appreciate everything a bit more easily.

Red buses! The old kind.....

..and the new kind.  And there's going to be an even newer kind soon.  I was pleasantly surprised to find that the buses are almost identical to the ones we have in Hong Kong.  

Outside the National Gallery in Trafalgar Square.

Trafalgar Square.  Typical London Weather....

Somebody's fancy horse drawn carriage! Some lord...or duke...or something...

A reading of "Peter and the Wolf" inside St. Paul's Cathedral.

Covent Garden getting all decked up in Christmas ornaments, even though it was only November.

The British Museum at night.

Typical London weather....again.

Can you believe this was on the same day and the same street as the previous picture? Also, what is a Sphinx doing on the Themes?

Fat pigeons getting their chow mein fix.

The London Eye.

Walking along the Themes.  Red telephone booth!

A man sharing his lunch with birds.

At the Battle of Britain Memorial.  Just happened to stumble across it.  Quite moving really.

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, some of my last stops on the tourist trail.
