The Sydney Morning Herald web site recently ran an article about The Best and Worst of British.

It was actually about the fun and perils, well mostly perils, facing any young Aussie backpacker who ventures over to London for a working holiday.

The “worst” fell into three areas:

– accommodation and how expensive it is

– employment and the British working culture

– public transport, particularly the tube

No surprises really.

But once you work out ways of dealing with them, London is still a great city and has loads to offer visitors.

Ok, it might also be overcrowded and dirty but tell me a place that isn’t these days. I hear even Sydney, god forbid, has started to go downhill and Melbourne is now “the” place to be in when you live in Oz.
