I thought I would share with you the good, the bad, and the overall confusing things I will need to get use to now that I live in London.
My biggest surprise was the "mind the gap" and "look right/left" notices on the floor. Although I just might have found them crazy in the start, I am now very happy they are there. Seriously the traffic never stops and the gaps are definitely ready to take anyone prisoner. The rows upon rows of nearly identical houses are both charming and confusing. One can easily get lost is a see of similarity. But I do love how people play with colour to differentiate their house from their next door neighbour.
British food is an acquired taste but they do love their snacks and boy do I need to be careful when walking down the chocolate/sweets/biscuits and cake aisles. The nice thing about London - and yes I am still in the food department - is that brunches are never far away, and they are always a treat. It's nice to see the restaurants buzzing with people, and food.
Then there is Primark and Topshop which are a nice change amongst the Zaras and the H&Ms, but I am sure I will get tired of them soon. Then again, there is a new shop to discover just around every corner. Finally, London's markets are just fantastic. Great for a bargain and unique pieces, or just to grab a quick bite to eat.
