Britain. Greenwich for all

The trouble with many visitors to London is that, having crushed each other’s feet in the Tate gallery, at Westminster and big Ben, they imagine that they have already seen all the fun. This is a mass delusion – happiness for the town of Greenwich: how many thousands of stupid tourists he managed to avoid in this way. London is not obvious, the provincial and dearly loved the following story. Continue reading

Rest in England with a glass of wine. English wine – exotic product

Today we will talk about alcoholic beverages. Nice subject, isn’t it? I myself love, a sinful deed… But not keen. I advise you. Recently invited to the feast “Beaujolais Nouveau” – the traditional day of the first opening of bottles of French wine “Beaujolais” new harvest – but I did not go. To be honest: first of all, because I do not really like Beaujolais. Very average, in my opinion, the wine is too expensive for wines of this level, which became popular only thanks to the brilliant marketing strategy. Continue reading

Britain. Tour to the island of Jersey

If you talk about what is good island of Jersey, it is best to start not with what it is, and with what is not here. There is no unemployment, value added tax, mass rallies, drunks on the streets, political parties, car thieves… “Where would they steal them?”– asks a rhetorical question guide named Hughes.

But it is not the thieves who are to blame, but the sea and the unlucky tourists who Park their cars near the water, not knowing that during the tides its level rises here to fourteen meters compared to the level of the tides.” So the missing cars aren’t stolen by hijackers, they’re stolen by the sea.

Pub culture in England

In the long wanderings around London you will visit a crazy thought in the spirit of the heroes of Woodhouse, looking like this: “And it would be nice to mix with the crowd and become one of these eccentric Englishmen.” Do not resist this desire. Just go to the whorehouse. However, there is still more correct to send you into a “public house”. After all, the word “pub”, which the whole world calls the famous British drinking establishments, is nothing more than an abbreviation of public house – so in the strict Victorian era was called popular among the people beer, or elhausy.

Tour of the London underground

“Ladies and gentlemen,” announces the driver of the train, standing at one of the stations of the Central line, ” sorry for the delay, but in front of us has accumulated a queue of trains, and I thought: why don’t we all wait at the station instead of steaming and then expire in the tunnel.” All for a few minutes it becomes easier. But then again piled stuffiness and again increases grumpy swearing passengers, however, in this situation, do not lose the famous English sense of humor. Continue reading
