London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony

Every Olympics opening ceremony is unique and should not be compared to others as some commentators have done.  As for the London 2012 opening ceremony I thought it was awe-inspiring and I watched avidly with a full range of emotions culminating in tears when I saw the Olympic Cauldron lit and come together in such a beautifully simple but highly symbolic fashion. Tears streaming down my face, I contemplated that If only all the world’s nations could do the same and start to love each...

Natural History Museum

History of this museum depends on the collection that British Government purchased from Sir Hans Sloane in the early 18th century. At that time, the collection is placed to the British Museum’s building. This collection did not last long and disappeared in time due to the ignorance and recklessness of the museum staff. But it still served to inspire a section on natural history.In time additions were made to the collection in the British Museum. And when the Natural History section of the...

When I was planning my London travel, one of the first place come to my mind was Royal Albert Hall. The structure which has the leading role on the...

To find this place by pure luck was a good surprise for me. I guess have a blessing from someone …Established in 1761 at York, Henry Sotheran Limited, holds the title of being the world’s oldest antique book dealer. Until 1815 they stay in York and then moved in to London. In 1936, they moved to their address in...

Probably you already know this from other articles on my web page but let me say it again: I started to learn cello in an adult age. When I was in London I haven’t planned to see a string shop but during a concert I saw several ads of shops in city. So, why not, I thought. The other day I was around Marlyebone and remembered that, I’m pretty close to Bishop Strings and decided to see it. In Turkey we don’t have specialized string shops, so we don’t have a chance to deal expert...
