A few things I noticed in LDN
- Didn't realize I would run into so many cake face bandits here. They rival the ones I see in Jersey
- This place is way cleaner than NYC
- In all my travels I have never experienced culture shock until I hit Heathrow. It sounds cute when you hear one British accent in the midst of Americans or from the token Brit on that one American tv show. It is quite overwhelming when everyone around you sounds like that. This place makes me realize how "American" I am. Never felt that way anywhere else.
I am unfamiliar with the term "cake face bandits", but it sounds a very colorful expression indeed.
FWIW, I've been going to London for nearly 30 years, some 20+ visits, and I never feel as American as when I'm there - and my accent isn't even that 'Murican (so says my UK-raised partner).
Glad that you're having fun.
