Mikey and I in SoHo drinking some wine (nice and classy)

London is gritty.  Grimy.  Cloudy.  Rainy.  But it's a wonderful city to go visit, and possibly live if it weren't for the outrageous cost of living.  Example:  four donuts cost £4, or $8.  That's enough to get Krispy Kreme for the whole office!

The whole town is old, but the cars are brand new.  The people are austere and stand-offish, yet they wear some of the nicest shoes and suits I've ever seen.  It's a city of contrasts.  The world-renowned modern art Tate Museum is in place of a giant old power plant on the river, and it's amazing.  Big Ben stands boldly over the same river, which is dirty and brown.

The metro is a wonder, and it's a wonder who takes the metro.  (answer: everybody).  I'll have pictures up, but this computer won't let me load pictures here.

Yea, London is ridiculously expensive. I think I just ate at Burger King every day I was there, and it was still like $8.
