A London photo every day. Some pictures will be there for their own sake, some because they are places you may like to see, all because they are part of what makes London what it is. Requests welcome!

Comments on "Looking For London"
feels like me last week:D
I visited London in 1997, however, I never really got lost around the city. I had a map of the place, a highlighter and a pen... and when I came to a street corner, I leaned against a building and looked around with my map in front of me so I could figure out where I was... so I didn't appear lost, I just looked like I was looking around. :)
Lesson - don't use a colorful map when Ham is around with a camera in hand!
Really?! Never misdirected a tourist.....
I once offered to show a tourist around London...10 years later we have been married 8 and have 2 kids! Giving good directions has worked out very well!
That's a great map you get from better mid-range hotels. It's got a good layout of the streets of central London with a lot of navigation points - landmarks, museums, stores that sponsor the map, etc. It also has a Tube map and index of better known roads and places. The Tourists' A to Z. I had one that was eventually cello-taped over all the creases by the time I moved back to The States.One of my favourite days, shortly after moving to London, was when I was approached by a couple of tourists asking for directions. I'd only been in town for about two weeks, but it let me know I already looked more like a local than a tourist, even with my gigantic white leather high tops! (At least to tourists.)
Looks a bit chilly there!I love how Londoners pride themselves on giving directions around their city.
I have a map like that! This photo reminds me my trip to London! I want to go back to London so bad!
