Weather

 

I thought which part would be better for the beginning of my talk about my trip to London. And nothing is better than I begin with the weather.

The umbrella did not help at all, because the wind was walking all over London, not noticing any obstacles. Also fog could surprise everyone. It suddenly appears before your eyes, and just as suddenly disappears. So you need to check as possible a lot of cafe with hot tea and something else when you prepare your trip to London.

The British thus save water such this way. They fill the sink with water and wash their hands in it, not under the stream of water, as we are accustomed to. The English are very pragmatic.
