Shortly after Eat This Poem began in 2012, I told you about a trip I took to London. It was a nostalgic trip for me, walking familiar streets (and sitting in the same squares as Virginia Woolf), seeing favorite museums, and stopping by the building where I took most of my classes while studying abroad. One thing was certain: I loved the city just as much as when I left it.
These images are from my 2008 trip, and when fellow American and long-time London resident Elena Bowes got in touch with me asking if she could put together a London literary guide, I couldn't wait to host one of my favorite cities on Eat This Poem permanently, and revisit some of my favorite memories.
Elena is from San Francisco, but moved to London in the late eighties and has never left. She brings a thoughtful perspective to the guide, from her favorite local coffee shop to the best way visitors can follow in the footsteps of London's famous writers.
