What are the top ten things I’d do if I had time and resources to stay in London longer than a week? Hmm. Great question.
- Depending on the weather, I’d run Hyde Park, then collapse under a tree, people watch, and imagine . . .
- I’d sample a different café every day.
- I’d make a real phone call from a phone booth.
- I’d go back time and again to the British Museum and look at the exhibits with a discerning eye instead of snapping pictures to examine later.
- I’d have coffee at Starbucks at the Tower of London and watch and listen.
- I’d wander through every shop and booth in Covent Garden and linger.
- I’d take the Tube and discover new places to spend time.
- I’d go to Shakespeare’s Globe Theatre.
- I’d find a different cabbie to talk to every day—just to talk about the city.
- I’d try to enjoy white wine at room temperature.
That’s today’s list. For those of you who have been to London, what would you do?
