To London, with Love (Part 2)

London Eye

A bad day in London is still better than a good day anywhere else. There is so much to love about this place and the people.

Waking up to a beautiful morning and doing the traditional breakfast. Going out and top-uping your oyster card, then walking all the way to the train station to see the hustle and bustle of the city.

Standing at the underground train station to wait for your train and listening the famous 'Mind the gap please' announcement. Reading the daily ' Though of the day' at the train station and then always picking up a newspaper on way back home.

Walking in random streets to absorb the greatness of the city, visiting the famous places to see how history is remembered and cherished.

Then waiting for the sun to set and enjoying the way people transform themselves from the day life to night life. The London of night is another feeling and another world altogether.

The unpredictable weather, but then predictable people.

Looking at people how the conduct their lives in an orderly manner is exciting in itself.

Queuing for everything be it getting inside a bus, or pub or waiting in the line for paying in the stores. Taking a sunbath whenever they get a chance, always trying to walk fast or jog to find time and keep themselves healthy and fit. Always giving the impression of being busy.

Always ready to shop and spend as much as possible on buying the most trendy clothes.

Walking in the streets with coffee in hand, earphones plugged in. Reading newspapers or books in the trains.

Never bothering anyone no matter what anyone is doing, but yes always ready to help someone when they want, always willing to say sorry even if someone comes in front of you, but most importantly always having a smile on their face.

In short there are one million reasons to love the city and its people, and very few reasons not to do so. It is truly said that when a man is tired of London, he is tired of life, for there is in London, all that life can afford.
