As this small, above sampling shows and details, this lengthy piece is an interesting mix of viewpoints from this one writer on how London has changed and evolved. The author is A. A. Gill, a contributing editor for Vanity Fair and a features writer for The Sunday Times of London. There is also a "PRACTICAL TRAVELER" segment that is headlined: "Want to Go to the Olympics? Act Now"
We have visited London and the nearby area four different times. It has been fun to see it evolve since our first visit there in 1977. Great history, culture, charm, architecture, people and sights are there. Love London so much. Not sure everyone will agree with all of this writer's viewpoints, but, like London, the story reflects its interesting diversity and people. If you're visiting London in the upcoming year, this story is worth reading and considering your many options in this great city.
