A Letter from London

Hello, my name is Maryna. I am a Ukrainian girl. I am in my early teens. I live in London with my parents who work as journalists.

I came to London from Kyiv almost four years ago. Back then London looked to me like a huge metropolis with lots of beautiful buildings, very narrow streets, funny looking buses and a very dirty underground. But of course, it had Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace and St Paul’s. In the first year I still felt like a tourist, so I did most of the sightseeing then. I climbed St Paul’s (a healthy and fun exercise, if you ask me, complete with gorgeous views), I went to the Tower of London (you MUST see all the Crown Jewels!) and I watched the Changing of the Guards at Buckingham Palace. But since then I got lazy - I still haven’t managed to see the inside of Westminster Abbey and the Houses of Parliament. I keep promising myself that I will go, but never seem to find time...
