London I

Hello everyone!

As you know, I was in London a few weeks ago with my mom. We stayed at my great grandmothers house for 9 days.
The weather was great, but there were two days of a bit cooler and a bit more windy like weather.
But now when I look back I'd go there again and again...! :)

Day one!
We had to unpack our things and take a look around the neighborhood - Hammersmith. It's very nice, mom said that it's cleaner now after 9 years. We loved Primark and why wouldn't we, super cool clothes for a good price! 

Day two!
We got up early in the morning and went to Greenwich with the tube - such a good transport system! We have our own Oyster cards now :) 
Greenwich is beautiful! I saw Cutty Sark before it was caught of she is a beauty in a glass fence. We visited the Greenwich Market, which I recommend to all you craft-art lovers, because you will find a lot of good, clever, quality crafts there! We also visited Clocktower Market - full of antiques which are my favourite things to watch.
And because that was all for day one on our "plan", we took the tube and went off at the Monument (also the station is called that). You have all the information on it, so here is a picture.

Day three!
We took the tube and left it somewhere near St. Paul's Cathedral 
and walked to it, take a look around and then went to One New Change - a huge department store with an elevator that takes you up to the roof, looking directly to the Cathedral. And on the top you have a great panoramic view of the city.
And after that we went to Piccadilly Circus and up to Soho.

Day four!
Tate Modern was our first stop. Interesting art work - loved Picasso and Pollock and of course Turner. The gallery is interesting by itself and on the top you have a great view of St. Paul's Cathedral and the River Themes. 
After that we went along the shore, passing Globe Theater, The Shard and arriving to Tower Bridge :)
Across river Themes bypassing Tower of London and we stopped at Westminster and then we went home :)

Five days to come, so stay tuned!

Movie Thursday: Puss In Boots

The events leading up to the sword fighting cat's meeting with Shrek and his friends. Now he is all alone, bringing up bad memories and looking for the magical beans.

And of course the look. That sweet look that makes you go "Ooooh <3". A fun movie with a fun twist :)

Movie Thursdays: Memories of Murder

South Korea in 1986 under the military dictatorship: Two rural cops and a special detective from the capital investigate a series of brutal rape murder. Their crude measures become more desperate with each new corpse found. Based on a true case.

This Korean crime thriller is one of the most tense movies I have ever seen. The wonderful scenery, intense performances and a chilling story make it interesting throughout its whole running time. Although there are some very funny moments in this movie, it's still pretty disturbing and sad, but well worth a look!

Movie Thursdays: The Seven Samurai

A poor village under attack by bandits recruits seven unemployed samurai to help them defend themselves.

This one has been long overdue. One of the best movies I have ever seen was recommended to me by my brother, who is absolutely in love with this movie. And I can understand why! A simple story, yet so remarkable because of its great characters, strong performances, awesome action scenes, bolstered by excellent camera-work and glorious cinematography. It has been considered the greatest action film of all time, and I have no problems with that. A truly great classic.
