London is my favorite city in the whole wide world…and I just finished getting back from a small trip. Like every city there are great things but there are some that are not that wonderful. So here is a quick recap of my loves and hates of my fav city…

What I love…

1. Truly international. The one city where you really find people from EVERYWHERE…more so than New York or any other place. Take any random sample of 10 people…and you get several nationalities…I love that…
2. So much to do!!! Theater, musical concerts of every genre, clubs, pubs, restaurants, art shows, events, events, events…you never get bored!!!
3. The history and traditions. There is just a nice sense of tradition that I really like about London. People are proud of their heritage.
4. People are more educated. For the most part. It is nice to be able to converse with people that are educated. And I don’t mean just college or university. I mean they tend to be more well rounded. They know about arts, music, authors, geography, current events around the world, culture in general. More interesting conversations take place!!!
5. Random hidden little places. London is a city of discoveries as well. If you are a discoverer and stray from the popular sites and dare to take on the adventure, there is a different world out there. Full of pubs and random caves under the River Thames that are so intriguing.
6. Museums are free!!!!…I love going to museums…and in the UK they are free
7. A clean tube…I go to NYC a lot and other cities with subway systems. By far the cleanest subway system that I have ever been in was in Stockholm but London’s is pretty clean. I like that. I don’t feel like I am going to catch a disease or be killed by someone in the tube.
8. Universities have pubs…need I say more???
9. Futbol…I am not a big fan of Arsenal or Chelsea but the fact that there is Futbol…its great…
10. And the thing that I love the most about London…is that is the one place I feel really comfortable…It fits…and that is a great feeling

What I hate…

1. Is there a serious lack of napkins in the U.K. or what? I mean can you freaking serve me a napkin…I hate cleaning my hands on my clothes or my face with my hands…grrr…
2. I know there are hooligans in England…but do they really have to tackle people at a tube stop???? Come on…I’m only 120 lbs!!!!
3. Bathroom faucets??? There is one for the hot water and one for the cold water. What am I supposed to do with that??? The point is to get temperate water!!!!
4. Why are the bath tubs so high??? I need a latter just to get in and out of them…discrimination against the shortys…
5. And I really couldn’t come up with a fifth thing…

Overall, London is a great city. I highly recommend to everyone. As far as for me, I will sure go back. Many times over…
