In June, 2000 I went to visit London (England, not Kentucky) for the first time,
which was a long wait, considering that I have worked for my company (a global
venture of British Telecom and AT&T) for over five years. It is quite a
large city, with a huge, very diverse population.
You could not pay me
enough money to be a London cabbie. They require an excellent knowledge of
the city (they can take you anywhere, from memory) as well as NERVES OF STEEL,
as the throngs of maniacal motorcyclists and bicyclists dart in and out of
traffic with only an inch of clearance on either side. True dare
devils. And don't get me started on the pedestrians.
On my second day there, I took the "Big Bus Tour"
and saw quite a lot of the city. I saw the rest of the city by getting
lost several times, a talent for which I am now legendary. I cannot
remember when I have done so much walking, nor when I have seen so many
people. New York City seems tame by comparison.
