London wrap-up

Posted here (week 1678).

Impressions

Central London is clean, approachable, and the locals are more polite and friendly than you could imagine. Not sure I could stay, though, with smoking being so prevalent and most socializing centered around drinking at pubs.

Highlights

  • Bicycle tour

  • Getting out to Oxford, albeit briefly

Left to do

  • Stonehenge

  • A football match

  • Parliament in session

  • Staying outside the tourist-trodden center, perhaps in an outlying town
