|Chinatown near SOHO, London.|
Once at the Tottingham Station, we rode the escalator up and onto the streets. It's Monday and the streets are full of people shopping or going to work. One can tell the tourists by the cameras around their necks or backpacks on their shoulders. SOHO is a fairly large area of the Westminster section of London. It is known as the "entertainment" district. There are a good number of theaters and cinema houses everywhere. In addition, there are "jazz" and music clubs here and there. The entertainment available to the customer seems endless.

We explored much of SOHO and found our way into Piccadilly Circus. More theaters and cinemas are here too. Even more pubs and cute little coffee houses and restaurants -- large and small -- are all around. It's as delightful an environment as we've seen anywhere. Two Underground stations serve the area -- Tottingham Court and Liecester Square, so it's very easy to get from place to place.

Exploring London, even on a rainy day, is an enjoyable and exciting adventure. There are so many delightful districts to the city -- South Kensington, Greenwich, SOHO, Trafalgar Square -- that always finds something interesting to do. Each district seems to have a personality of its own.
