This is the first part of my trip around the world. I flew from New York to Heathrow Airport and was met by a friend. It’s always great to have a friend show you around their hometown.
London Bridge is not falling down. It’s in good shape, but it looks pretty dull compared to Tower Bridge.
One thing about London is that the streets are not straight like in America. It makes traveling around interesting as you weave through the streets. You never know what you will find up ahead.
Also, with the traffic reversed, you must look to the right rather than the left before you step out on the street. The cars closest to you come from the right. My friend pulled me back as I looked left and was stepping into the street. A truck whizzed by.
There’s a lot you can see just walking around down by Thames River (they pronounce it Tems for some reason) but riding on the upper level of the bus is a fun way to see things, too.
