10 things I’ve learned about London so far

Things I’ve learned about London so far:

  1. Jaywalking is a thing. I think it’s actually encouraged. Why wait at the crosswalk in rush hour traffic? It’s like real life frogger
  2. Londoners will sit on any green space. If there’s a plot of land with a bit of grass, expect it to be occupied by at least twenty people
  3. Londoners like to drink: as in go out straight after work and stay out until the wee hours (especially on Thursdays?)
  4. Everyone dresses to impress, sweatpants aren’t a thing here.
  5. Pigeons are fearless. They’re everywhere and no one ever flinches! Dirty birds!
  6. Indian food is England’s National cuisine. (Or at least in A’s mind it is…)
  7. Diversity. So many beautiful people, so many walks of life.
  8. The Underground is your best friend, and so is your Oyster Card.
  9. Londoners like a good queue, which is hilarious because that’s one of the things I try to avoid
  10. Portapottys are called portaloos.

So far this trip has consisted of: bouts of homesickness + lazy afternoons in the park + walks along Southbank + Tea (so much tea) + museums as far as the eye can see + monuments + baby graffiti tours + riding the underground + riding the underground + riding the underground…
