The trip was fantastic despite the heat (hey, London was hot like hell and we didn't have a single drop of rain! ), since we had already been there twice before we could focus in the areas and activities we had previously enjoyed the most. British way of life is just wonderful and in many cases an example to others, and that's one of the reasons I was visitting London for the third time in my life. I as well know Birmingham and Coventry in UK.

About London vs other places I know, I must confess I travel less often than I'd liked to, so the only other main European city I know so far (besides Madrid, obviously) is Paris. Although I consider Paris just more beautiful than London and a must if visitting Europe, it just lacks something London definitely has got. Paris makes you feel like you're in a huge museum while London gives you that vibrant feeling that encourages you to join the city and be a part of it. It's just something I usually fail to explain, but let's say that London has something special that other cities despite being amazingly beautiful just don't have.
Thats fantastic to hear, thanks for the review. Also about the heat - we are currently in a drought - SE England has only had 5 inches of rain all year. - Do you like our drinking habbitats? lol

Patachou, I am astonished at your ability to comb the archives for dormant threads of London. I will move this to Urban Showcase for original photography.

I used to do that the few months after I joined the forum, you explore what was said and shown before and sometimes you forget that the threads are old when you post an answer. There's nothing bad about it, I don't why it pisses mod of so much (exept when the threads are troll nests of course).
