Quick Glimpse Of London During My Business Trip
Photos of the Big Ben and London Eye were some of highlights of my trip but were nothing compared to getting picked up in a limo to attend a cricket game at the Oval Stadium.
During my stay in Europe I wanted to drop by London, England but also to take care of some business.
I pretty much booked my flight 2 days in advance with EasyJet. The flight was amazing, I could see my entire suburb plus the beach from my window seat on the way to England.
London is an incredible city and very multi-cultural, I noticed many Japanese tourists, even geishas on the subway whom I talked to in Japanese.
Located on the River Thames, London has been a major settlement for two millennia, its history going back to its founding by the Romans, who named it Londinium.
London's ancient core, the City of London, largely retains its square-mile mediaeval boundaries. Since at least the 19th century, the name London has also referred to the metropolis developed around this core.
London is a leading global city, with strengths in the arts, commerce, education, entertainment, fashion, finance, healthcare, media, professional services, research and development, tourism and transport all contributing to its prominence. It is one of the world's leading financial centres and has the fifth- or sixth-largest metropolitan area GDP in the world depending on measurement.
It is the world's most-visited city as measured by international arrivals and has the world's largest city airport system measured by passenger traffic.
