Quick Overview

I still remember the first time I braved the tubes by myself, to go and see Tower Bridge.  I was in London on a holiday visa for a 2 month period with my sister and a few friends.  I was not very well-traveled and this big city was a totally new world to me.  I really wanted to see Tower Bridge and after the a month of all work and no play I decided to brave the tubes by myself.  I was still pretty clueless about where I was going,  but I made it in time before the tubes closed, I saw the bridge and made it back to where I needed to be, all by myself.  Since that first visit I went over to London again later in my life and lived there for 2 years.  It is such a vibrant city, to me it seemed that anything is possible there.  This canvas will bring back a lot of fond memories for me (and a few not so fond ;), but it is all part of life and it's learnings.   

London, a city with so much history and one that many a South African went to work in.  This is the city with the Big Ben, Mind the Gap, Buckingham Palace and the Cullinan diamond, to name but a few.  

Here are a few fun facts about this city:

  • London is in fact, the smallest city in England.  The megacity most of us know as London is know as 'Greater London', while the actual City of London has a population of just over 9000 people.
  • The density of trees and greenery in the city allows classification as a forest, according to the UN definition.
  • There are more Indian restaurants in London than in Mumbai!
  • More than half of the London Underground runs above ground.
  • This city gets about 8 million visitors per day.
  • There are other cities called London as well - In the US there are 10, Canada 1 and France also has a London.
