The great cities of the world include London, England. (Was it even necessary to add the country?)
The most recognizable of the tourist sites are historical. Many of them are connected to London’s function as the seat of government, a center of commerce for centuries, and a habit of building something new in the style of a past century.
London is also a modern city. Busy airports on the edge. A modern highway makes a ring around the urban area. An eclectic mix of trucks, buses, cars, motorbikes, and bicycles fill the city streets and make pedestrians nervous. (And religious.)
I present to you my final photo from this blog review of my recent vacation. A piece of modern skyline viewed from the Thames.
