The city has become very multicultural. Although there are still pockets of the old England, like Hampstead and Notting Hill, I doubt if people would recognise the place (unless it were for the landmarks). In some ways this is great as it is a very vibrant city but in other ways it is a shame as it has lost a lot of its identity. I still love the city and enjoy exploring it on a lovely day but it has lost some of its charm. There is obviously a lot more to say about London but I hope that this has given you a taste.
Hi Pam: If I have the "right" Pam, you are part of a group with Alan F. in the northern Illinois, southern Wisconsin area, correct? Alan and I have been working on planning a get together of our two groups. I'm a member of the Fox Valley Atheists through meet-up.
