The London Bridge Experience

Amongst the interesting places in London the London Bridge is good to watch commuters. Especially bankers – every morning there’s an army of suspicous people walking from London Bidge Station towards the city. A true spectacle – a sad rat race. It’s also a good starting point for places to visit near London. This photo […]

Is Elephant And Castle Safe

If you’re looking for places to live in London Elephant & Castle should not be on your list. Or if you’re local you’d only say the elephant. Or you like the wired things then go to the elephant & castle pub. Anyway it seems like a “failed utopia” – council houses just never work for nobody. […]

PigeonParadise

Lots of people think there’s a pigeon problem. Getting rid of pigeons? That’s the way you do it. Unfortunately the pigeons spear themselves while trying to land – resulting in lots of only one-legged crippled pigeons. Not sure why the pigeons in london try to land on these friendly constructions? Can’t they spot the spikes? […]

It might sound funny but you don’t want to know. San Salvador was considered the most dangerous city in the world in 1992 – I got rather violently mugged in El Salvador in 2003 which might makes me biased. However these are some tips from Wiki travel: Don’t walk on streets that look abandoned and […]
