London’s like a forest . . . we shall be lost in it.

  1. Outsiders are indeed daunted by London. I used to tell them to think of it as a series of villages, and to not try to get to know it all at once. Using the Tube is never a good idea. I knew people who lived in London for years, and only knew their way around by tube stations. It deprived them of an overview, landmarks, and points of reference.
    Best wishes, Pete.
