Spent the first day in London doing all the touristy things, we got on an open top bus which took us to all the famous sites... And told us shit loads of facts and history about London... Quite a bit of which I have remembered and quite frequently I repeat in conversation.
Did you know that London was founded approx 2000 years ago...? And there is a shite load of history since then. Even though the place burned down in (forgot the exact year, but it ends in 66) all the buildings are like not modern... ancient and still standing, they look magnificent...
Crazy to think that now-a-days politicians and leaders of corporations have to sneak around to do dodgy things, but back then the king/queen could do what ever the fuck they liked and every one just obeyed... Hmmm I missed my calling.
Anther thing I have found weird is that there are heaps of palaces, chruches, houses of dukes etc and it's like... where do the peasants live...? There is some serious money in this town.
