    It's a capital city, all capital cities are like that. Bet New York's even worse.

    And yes, london does rock. You'll never get bored there. I like it so much I want to live there for the rest of my life
    i like new york more than london though, ny has more + higher skyscrapers

    America is by far the best place in the world.

    I love it And it doesn't have to be that much more expensive than other places to be honest. Eg. if you eat out in ask or somewhere like that it doesn't cost more in london! Plus there are SO MANY cheap places, you just have to find them and not be tempted to eat at the first place you see.

    The same goes for accommodation - it IS possible to find somewhere reasonably priced provided you don't settle without looking much.

    And I think it's actually pretty good for part time work as well as less structured things like one off work for concerts etc.

    If you live there, you can get cheap theatre tickets and all sorts by turning up on the day and there are so many free things to do (science museum is excellent!!)

    And everywhere is on terrorist alert not just london. Manchester, birmingham.. all these places are probably at the same level of risk to be honest. That's just the way things are nowadays and i'm not going to let it put me off moving to a city that I love!

    However, parking is indescribably expensive. £3 an hour + and that is as long as you can actually find somewhere. I don't mind driving around london , it isnt a good idea if you suffer from road rage or are impatient though. I quite like the tube to be honest there are plenty of weirdos but it isn't so bad and it gets you places quickly.

    London is good to spend a few days in a go every year or maybe every two years. However I would find it too big if I had to live there. What I like so much about Manchester is that its a big city (it makes Edinburgh seem tiny) yet at the same time its not too big. Its freindly and there is countryside only 4 miles away from the city centre.

    I like to go up to Camden christmas shopping a couple of times during Autumn - then spend New Yrs Eve wandering round Camden then having a meal in China Town.

    And of course we always go up for the Notting Hill Carnival

    I love the science and natural history museums. I also love camden market on a sunday morning. I can only take london at one week at a time, it does my head in after a while. I know someone who lives there, they live opposite a v. famous person.

    we have tradition, its just that the world refuses to recognize it as tradition.......

    what about surfing, and skating with your best buddies after school? sandlot baseball, and park football during the summer? what about american children that are old enough, pilgrimage to the swimming pool every day when it gets hot? and the curfew that is most commonly said as, "get home when the street lights dim?"

    thats tradition.....and while it might not be a queens coronation or anything, it is most certainly the way we are raised.....
