Looking For London



I do like tourists visiting London and I have NEVER been guilty of misdirecting them; doesn't this picture tell a story?

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!

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.
