This breathtaking view of London South Bank with its ultra modern glass towers against the dark evening sky is worth the visit to the United Kingdom! When I lived in London in 1990 for my doctoral dissertation research, it didn't look like this at all. South London, south of the Thames River, was generally dowdy and, in some places, run down. If you wanted excitement and elegant city life, you went to Chelsea or Kensington, and that's exactly what I did by moving from Southwark in South London to Chelsea on the other side of the river.
Through the massive redevelopment over the past three decades, London has become ultra modern and chic, without forsaking its old, world-famous grandeur. It's a city that wears age and modernity with an equal panache. I love London!
