Not as sad and grey as you may think
Who thought London was a sad city ?
If that was your case you are totally wrong. London is one of the most colorful city I have ever visited. Not only for its world famous red phone booths but also for the lovely colored houses, doors and windows. Either flashy like near Convent Garden or pastel like in Notting Hill.
For the Londoners everything seems to be an excuse to put color: doors, facades, storefronts, or buses. As if they wanted to ward off the gloomy weather that often plagues the British capital.
