London! The green heaven

We took our high school students to London and spent wonderful 6 days. We stayed in a green hostel called YHA Earl’s Court which is in a very secure and lovely area. Although our students complaint a bit, we walked a lot to understand the city better. London Eye, London Dungeon, Tower Bridge, London Tower,…
