Day 2 - London





All I did was walking for nearly 4 hours and site seeing Baker Street, Edgware Road, London Eye, Big Ban, House of Parliment, The National Gallery, Leicester Square, China Town, Hyde Park.... I met F at Paddington station and she was my tour guide to show me around. Even though I have seen all these places before I felt as if I was visiting them for the first time.




Coming from an IT and Marketing background one of the things I really love here are their advertisements. You see all kinds of advertisements on the streets from awarness campaigns to promoting a product. Something new I have noticed this time are the new projectors they have installed at some of the undergrounds and the tv screens replacing the posters while walking up the escalators on the under ground tube stations.









Today I will be visiting London Dungeon, The London Eye and Madame Tussauds. From what I have heard visiting these 3 places will take all of my day. I have been to Madame Tussauds before 10 years so it will be something new for me this time. I am excited about it and will be posting more pics soon.
