You will never hear me say "no" to a trip to London. Ever since I visited with my family as a teenager, this city has grabbed my attention and never let go. At first, it was probably the typical Brit-American differences that made me fall in love: the accents, the old architecture, the "smallness" of everything from cars to sinks to front doors, the Tube, the boys, the fashion, the Spice Girls, etc. When I moved here in 2002 to study, I was fulfilling a dream to live in another country and I couldn't wait to immerse myself in what I was soon to realize was a completely different culture. I've only been back a couple times since moving to New York 11 years ago, so this first stop on our European excursion was a must. Always on my list is to check out one of their many markets, interesting pastry, have a curry, and just walk this wonderful city. Sadly, I didn't get a chance to photograph the utmost delicious Indian food I had at this little hole-in-the-wall place near London Bridge. I highly recommend Mango Tree just off Southwark Street!
