【What’s up in UK No.3】

Regent Street and Piccadilly Circus in London 

I strolled along the Regent Street which was the main shopping street for the tourists in London .I saw a lot of tourists who were visiting London and enjoying the shopping. 

The lunch was taken with my wife at one of the British style restaurants called Browns. This restaurant is the fusion of British food and French food. It is for the first time that we have taken the lunch at this restaurant .

The food which we have had was a cut above the rest and delicious.

I took the starter as the oyster . I was sharing the oyster with my wife .

I took the Fillet of Beef with a glass of red wine as the main course and my wife took the Sea Bass with a bottle of water 

The picture was taken in front of the Ralf Lauren Store in the Regent Street

You can see a lot of tourist as well as business man.
Main Regent Street. There are many big department store

The Piccadilly Circus  is one of the most popular destination for the tourist .

Young people are sitting at the Statue of Eros : This place is being used as the  meeting place  among young people . The picture was taken in front of the big advertising screen.

From this place I can easily walk to the Leicester Square where there is the China Town.

【What’s up in UK No.2】

I make it my principle to wake up early in the morning and take a walk near my house in order to maintain good health and stay young at heart .  

I have encountered the small hotel called The Barn Hotel while I am walking in the morning.So  I decided to drop in at the hotel and have a breakfast  

 

The breakfast which I have had is English Breakfast which consists of beans, scrambled egg, sausage, ham and mushroom with a jug of coffee and a glass of orange juice .

 

After I finished breakfast I have taken a walk in the garden of the hotel and took a picture of daffodils and cherry tree which shows the arrival of spring in U.K. The flowers are in full bloom in London.  

 

But the weather in London is 4 or 5 degrees in the morning and the temperature will rise to 14 or 15 degrees in the daytime .I noticed the big difference in the weather between the morning time and daytime . I have to prepare for the clothes for two seasons every day. I have to be very careful not to catch a cold .   

There is the Pub in the village called Coach and Horse . People in the village goes to the pub and have drinks every day .  

There is a parish church which belongs to the Church of England  

It is generally believed that people in the village go to the church every Sunday to attend Sunday Service and after Sunday service people go to the pub in order to have Sunday Roast Beef.

But the realty is that young people do not go to the church on Sunday and are absorbed in  the computer at home .  

The summer time is expected to start from 31st  March 2019 . We have to put one hour foreword on the night of 30th March .

【What’s up in UK No.1】

Dear sirs 


I take the liberty of sending the information about London in order to get acquainted with the city of London as I was born and bred in Inami cho, but have lived in England.

Having stayed there in the month of February 2019 , I have returned to London safe and sound at the beginning of March and finally overcome the Jet lag.

I would like to take the opportunity to send the picture of “The Parliament “which is one of the most popular tourist spots among the travellers.

U.K. is expected to leave the European Union as of 29March 2019 and become independent from the Europe . So there are lots of debates about the Brexit which are taking place  every day,.But nothing has been finalised regarding the deal with the European Union .Brexit will have the huge influence on our life.

The Parliament is under refurbishment including the Ben.The Big Ben is covered with the scaffoldings . It is due to this reason that I have not taken a picture for the Big Ben. The only picture which I can forward is “The Parliament “

It would be nice if this picture could help you to gain the understanding of London 

Yours sincerely

Person living in U.K.
