London again

Well its been few days in London and I think I know the place a little bit. There were many pluses and minuses I have seen in the city.
First the minuses:
1.Everyone smokes here. When I say everyone, it means everyone. Kids, girls, guys, oldies, everyone. You can find a minor coming to you and asking you to buy a pack because its not sold to people below 18 years. In India you cannot smoke on stations, bus stands, any public place for that matter there is a fine of Rs 100 if you do so. But here, its like people come to public places to smoke. One good thing the Indian governmtnet has done. Good work stupid ministers.
2. Poverty. You can find people sleeping in one small corner of the street with minimal clothes. Mostly these guys would be from the east european countries.
3. Drugs. Everyday while coming back from office I cross these appartments built for the refugees and yesterday I could find people openly inhaling some kind of powder through the nose. And there were kids around that place. Looking like wow whats happening.
4. Foul mouthing. Oh my gawd!!! What language they use. I cant type here sorry. No one said anything to me but language was awesomely bad.
This country is mad.
Positive points:
1. People come forward to help. If you are lost then ask a guy who looks like 45 to 50 types and he will tell you the correct way to reach your destination. Dont as anyone between 18 and 30, they dont have time for you. :-)
2. Excellent roads, trains and underground metro. This is a developed country you can know from the infrastructure.
3. Girls wear less clothes in summers. :-)
4. Public showing of affection. The attitude is like "Ok now I feel like kissing my girlfriend and I kiss her. Now who has a problem? You? Ok we turn this way and kiss. Happy??" this is really cool attitude. And yes no one bothers or looks at them, everyone manages his or her own business and walks ahead.
5. Awesome buildings and beautiful palaces. I saw the Trafalgar square and Buckingham Palace and really liked it.
Thats all I have to say about that. Will post lots of photos very soon.
Jai Raam Ji Ki..

PS: Hey Sayesha can you tell me how I can post more than one photo in one post? I put the photos on the blog through Hello and BloggerBot.

Hey V,

I'm guessing you're asking me because of Hopscotch? I don't use Hello for Hopscotch, too risky. I upload my photos on my friend's own website, and just link them on Hopscotch using the img src code.

Hmmm... but if you're using Hello and Bloggerbot, I'm not sure if they have a way of posting multiple photos in a single post.

I guess what you can do is copy the html code from the individual photo posts (the one that Hello posts for you), collate them in a new post, and then delete the individual photo posts. Too troublesome if you have a lot of photos. (Imagine if I do that with Hopscotch?? I'll be 80 by the time I finish writing about one holiday!)

I'd suggest you upload all the photos you want in a single post to flickr or yahoo photos and then just link them.
