any time i fly from europe –> to usa or vice versa, i try to arrange a stopover in london. and each time i go, i find that i love it more and more. here’s why:
1. it’s the birthplace of my friend andy, who has an english accent so awesome many of my american friends suspect it’s fake; it’s just too charming to be real. plus, he wears velvet blazers with mickey mouse t-shirts, so…..
2. the tube. touristy, i know. but i love it. i love swiping that yellow oyster card through the turnstile and feeling like a brit. until i open my mouth to say “truck” instead of “lorry” or spell “colour” without a ‘u’.
3. platform 9 3/4. enough said.
