Great pictures, Chris! It seems that you managed to hit all the highlights of tourist London in less than 24 hours. Keep up the good work!

Was in London a decade before you. They still had those greedy pigeons in Trafalgar Square then, lol. Caught them in a shot with one on my arm, one on my shoulder and another on my head. It was really funny. It's been so many years already .
I had dreamt of walking around in Heathrow Airport when I was a kid. Woke up disappointed, but went back to sleep to continue the sweet dream. The reality was very much what I had imagined. Everyone loves London .

Hey Chris, how about Gloucester, Reading, Plymouth?

How do you get to go back so often?
Last time I was there was in 2005 and before that in 2000.
Let's see, the big change I noticed for 2005 was the oyster card. But it felt the same otherwise.
I really wish I planned to go now
What I am doing in Asia when there is the biggest party in London...aarrgghhh

There have been too many "Arrrghhhhs" coming from regretful BCers. Luckily Chris made the commitment to go. Good for him.
How about Lisle Street in the West End, Llanelli in Wales, Slough, Streatham...
