London in January

Wandering through the streets of London in the beginning of 2020 brought me to the idea of writing about what I have seen, heard, experienced and felt in this wonderful, multi-faceted city. My first visit to London was over 35 years ago when I just moved to Amsterdam as a student. I immediately fell in love with the very lively exciting city which reminded me of Tokyo. Over the years, I went back regularly and saw the gradual changes in the society just like anywhere else in the world. It became more multicultural and globalised, yet it kept a strong identity. The various historic and diverse cultural influences that came together to make up what I see and hear in this city still fascinates me. This was my last visit before Brexit but looking forward to many more visits to come.
