"Under Construction" London by martinelli

Well here is the deal: I don't really like London. Reason? It's not a very concrete one - our spirits simply don't match. Every time I go to London I feel depressed and consider taking heroine og abusing alcohol. The whole city just feels so... dismal.
To make matters worse I am from a touristic city myself, and have developed an acute allegy to hords of tourists, specially guided groups. My strategy is normally to visit highly touristed places off-peak, but this time we couldn't help it.
Why go back, then? Well, some friends of mine have the strange habit of ending up living there. And this time I also had to introduce the city to my husband, who had never been to England before.
We had a nice time, I must say. The weather helped a lot - most of the time we had sun, although the temperature never rose above 19C. Our hosts are lovely and we managed to keep a safe distance from guides holding umbrellas up and people eating at Pizza Express and blaming the british for serving bad food.
I'll fill the page as I find time, so check back.
