Although technically a country where everyone is a loyal subject of Her Majesty, the United Kingdom is actually historically a place where people have always been allowed to express themselves and go unnoticed, regardless of their garment, hairstyle and background.
The very fundament of British culture is about sobriety (certainly not alcoholic one though!) and tolerance towards the different. This probably originates from the fact that as a former colonial empire, people of the most diverse backgrounds and cultures somehow conveyed and and melted together.
Nowadays, the colonial times have come to an end. Nevertheless the underground life and the funky albeit slightly rainy atmosphere of London is like honey to the bee-like tourists of all over the world.
In fact, we found two tourists hailing from *very* far away in the picturesque Big Ben area.
