I’m go to London next week, in pursuit of a big project. This morning I was just minding my own business, quietly doing my own work; by afternoon I was comparing flight prices and trying to figure out how to spend as few evenings away from the kids as possible.
So next week I’ve got two days in the air for one day of meetings. There and back in less than 72 hours.
I hope I get real stamps in my passport this time.
So, a question to anyone who knows London well: I’ve got an afternoon and evening free. If you had lived in London for a long time, had an intimate knowledge of and affection for the city, and were back for a visit, where would you go / eat / hear / etc.? What cafe or bookstore can I absolutely not miss? Where’s the most interesting view of the city?
