London: the other parts/Лондон, просто город

London has many cozy beautiful places besides the ones that tourists like to visit.

В Лондоне много уютных интересных мест помимо тех, куда ходят туристы.

In order to get there, it's just enough to get off the beaten path and walk along side streets.

Достаточно просто уйти с широких основных улиц.









The brown building up ahead -- famous store named "Harrod's."

Коричневое здание впереди слева -- знаменитый универмаг Хэрродс.


Majority of the crosswalks state which side you need to look at to avoid cars if you want to cross the street. It's useful since the cars are driving on the left side of the road.

На дорогах написано в какую сторону смотреть чтоб не попасть под машину. Хорошая идея, к левостороннему движению привыкнуть быстро не получается.





To the left of the red phone booth is the original Hard Rock cafe. Some people complained that they could not find a decent burger in London, so they started the burger joint. One day a year, on the anniversary of its existence, this restaurant changes its prices to the original. Half-a-pound for a burger is a pretty hefty discount.

Слева от красной телефонной будки находится первый ресторан Хард Рок Кафе. Кое-кто когда-то пожаловался что нельзя найти приличного бургера в Лондоне, вот так и основали сеть ресторанов. Раз в год, на годовщину основания, в Лондоне в меню меняют цены на те, которые были в ходу на момент основания. Полфунта за бургер это очень хорошая скидка.

Despite the very high prices on land, the city has lots of parks.

Несмотря на высокие цены на недвижимость, в городе очень много зелени.

Picadilly Circus.

Trafalgar Square

Трафальгарская площадь.





Pubs have original and good food.

В таких пабах можно хорошо покушать.
