I remember last vacation when I was visiting London; I had a blast, so much history packed in one place amazed me. Walking in the UK capital is like walking through history. You see the old and the new combined in such a matter that you don’t know if you are in the past or in the future; and it fits so perfectly. Now you see a girl with the new Maybelline color tattoo eye shade and a few steps away another one dressed like a medieval princes. All of it captures your eyes and makes you think about everything: the past, the present, the future.
Approaching London Bridge a huge shadow blocs the Tames view, you can fee shivers down your spine. It’s there never late, never wrong; the old Big Ben is guarding the entrance to Westminster, London’s old city center. With its imposing statue the Westminster Cathedral is a constant reminder of the power that once Great Britain had.
On Oxford Street you find the stores, biggest brands in the world. It’s a good place to go shopping because you will find everything, from the Nike or Adidas store to Outlet and Zara, the Maybelline store, and not to mention small boutiques where you can buy souvenirs for loved ones. Talking about Maybelline store, just out of curiosity I went in. They had a sale on Maybelline Color Tattoo eye shade and it reminded me of the girl from before. The colors were so vibrant that they would capture your eyes and you couldn’t look away. After the shopping session on Oxford Street, I thought I should catch a show and what better place than Piccadilly Square or Piccadilly Circus as they call it.
While waiting in line to get a ticket, I saw just across the street the M&M store. No need to tell you that as soon as I got my ticket I ran there. No one should watch a show on the empty stomach. The store was magnificent, I don’t know if the fact that is was full of candy had anything to do with my perception or It was the best looking tore I had ever seen. Full of color and neatly organized, I still think it’s one of the best parts of the trip to the UK. The show was fantastic and I had a great time. Magnificent actors and great directing made that show probably the best one I’ve ever seen.
Walking back to my hotel room, I thought that I should check out the night life, being that was my last night there. So after taking a shower and resting for a bit, I was ready to take on the whole London. I heard that Cocoon is a great club, so I went there. It was a great night and I had tons of fun, British people really know how to have a good time.
The next day I had to leave, although I got a little home-sick, leaving London was hard and as the plane took off I felt sad
