This city is WAY more beautiful than I thought it would be.....WAY!!! And seriously rich, in the past and now. There are tons and tons of amazing buildings. As my offspring puts it, based on shipping spices, slaves and tobacco. Well. We can feel good about the spices anyway.
There continues to be some really amazing architecture being put up too. It is also bigger than I thought it would be. Clearly my assumptions about the city weren't accurate.
Flying in though....the Scots are different than the Catalans in one respect anyway, they've cut down every god damned tree for hundreds of kilometers. Every last one flying in was like a freaking moonscape. Weird.
The brits do know how to do milk products. Eating cheddar (how I miss it!) and having double cream in my tea!!! (Heh, I'm on vacation!!!)
