Big Ben and Parliament to name a few.....

Well, much to my surprise Big Ben is really not all that big. OK, I'll admit that it's a decent size but not at all how I imagined it after seeing numerous depictions of it in various movies and such. It is beautiful though.
I landed in London on 3 March and one of my best friends living there decided that there was no time like the present to hit the town. Basically I got a good nights sleep and hit the ground running on 4 March. No regrets here, believe me. I saw Big Ben, London Eye, British Parliament, Trafalgar Square, The Horse Guards, Thames River, and Westminster Abby to name a few. You may think that's a lot but I only had two weeks in London and given the amount of things I wanted to see and do while in town it was inevitable that I'd be seeing so many things in a day. There are pictures posted of the sights mentioned above.
First impression of London: Expensive but absolutely gorgeous. I'm one that tends to find romance in buildings and cities that have a lot of history. Yes, I may be a hopeless romantic but that's not always a bad thing. It can sometimes shed a new light on something that's old and dismal.
Impression at the end of the day: God, I am loving London!!
