London has lot more than Big Ben and Madame Tussauds
London, England, December 20, 2008
I first visited London when I was 15 years old to attend my cousin's wedding which was held in Hare Krsna temple outside London. After the wedding ceremonies, hanging onto my father's fingers, I skipped around Madame Tussauds
, the Tower of London
, London Bridge, Big Ben, through Hyde Park
and to the nearest eating places. More than 10 years later, London is my favorite destination for holidays and catch up with growing family of my cousin. Even though the winter months are depressing, the city comes alive in the summer. As the cherry blossoms bloom and days lengthen, London starts exuding an attractive, infectious energy. I really look forward to be in London every summer, if I can.
London attracts travelers from around the world. But after so many visits to the British capital, I have perfected the art of shopping on Oxford Street
and avoiding bumping into the known faces at Leicester Square
in my subsequent visits. Armed with my weekly travel card, I take the tube
and criss - cross the city, discovering places. The hop on - hop off bus tours are now passe for me. I can vouch that there is lot more to this vibrant city than Big Ben and Madame Tussauds.
