Firstly, it felt so good that everything you can read - shops, bilboards, in metro stations - is in English. You can approach anyone for help - and you are absolutely sure that they speak English :) Felt so good (its a simple point - but still it hit me) after living 1,5 yrs in Europe.
I also had a feel like Bombay - more like a posh Bombay, where the city never waits for you. Having 3 meetings in a day in different parts of London, and you feel exhaused at the end of the day - exactly how when you used to travel to Andheri or to V.T for meetings from Vikky...
People all dressed extremely nice, posh restaurants all around. Wimbledon, Notting hill, Bond street, Knightsbridge, King's cross - all names sound really good and classy to your ear :) And then you have funny names like the one shown below as well :)
The meetings were excellent and I got about 2 - 3 hrs in the last one week to do some sightseeing. I tried to do the usual touristy stuff - visiting Buckingham palace, Leicester Square - the place there the DDLJ shot was taken with Shahrukh jumping over one of the poles, Trafalgar Square, St. James park - beautiful!
Also I had a chance to eat South Indian food - after almost 1,5 years since I have seen a lot of Indian restaurants, but almost hardly anyone serves south indian!
Another great highlight was to meet few trainees, one of them actually whom I had matched with TCS a year and a half back - but never met him. And we had kept in touch and accidentaly I met him in London! Was extremely cool!
Overall, a great city - I think I can definitely live there, and I hope I can :)
Here's to more visits in the classy city!
