|My photo of the big red buses.|
I immediately thought back to my younger days when I was OBSESSED with the spice girls and I watched the movie “Spice World” featuring them parading around London in a big tour bus and passing all the major sites. I felt like a little kid all over again, discovering new things and getting excited over something as simple as a red telephone booth.

London has a certain charm unlike anywhere else. The buildings are beautiful, like Paris, and the pace is fast, like New York. I loved hearing all the British accents, especially because the words being spoken were English. I really struggled with the language barrier in Paris, maybe I am too much of a control freak to live in a city where the first language is foreign to me. I like to be able to handle situations and navigate my way and that was difficult in Paris. Another aspect I love about London is the nature. There is a lot of greenery, great parks, and the river of course flows right through the city. I feel so much healthier and fresher when I am sharing oxygen with the trees, as opposed to stuffy places like New York. My heart is still in NYC, don’t know what it is that gets me, but I can definitely see myself in London.
