London: where history meets the future

I planned to write something quite different tonight, but as Britain has lost a beloved Queen today, my thoughts return to London and wandering amidst her town. A legend, who early on captured her people with these iconic words, “I cannot lead you into battle, I do not give you laws or administer justice but I can do something else, I can give you my heart and my devotion to these old islands and to all the peoples of our brotherhood of nations.” Heart and devotion for 70 years! Wow, nothing but gratitude for such a grand lady. Read on to enjoy one of my memorable London visits!

I’ve returned home after a glorious week traipsing around London! Yes, impossible to see it all or do it all, but one can catch a glimpse, and for this traveler the sights were awe-filled. What struck me more this visit than any other is the fast-paced new-innovations that are capturing the cityscape, and the fact that these new wonders reside along with all the historical treasures the UK boasts.
