as a corollary, just in case you think london is this sweet and dandy place with girls dressed in robes playing the tiny piano by the thames (which happens, by the way, alongside the jamaicans playing reggae music), some parts of london are old, crummy and messed up.

the tube for one is a remarkable achievement, but it's really old. and some parts of town you don't want to go if you're not one of the people over there, the rougher parts of town. haven't really been to those, but i've been to elephant and castle, and you can see everything's visibly older, groceries are cheaper, and couple of homeless people on the streets.

so not everything's fine and dandy yeah.

but i like it here.
