My Trips to London

By Leonard E. Burnett, III
Age 9 - Grade 4
Harlem, New York

I have visited London on three trips. My mom was born and raised in London. The flight from New York to London takes about five hours.

London is the capitol of England. I find it interesting that the steering wheel is on the right side and the people drive on the left side of the road.

There is Big Ben, a giant clock. It bongs loudly every hour on the hour. This really gets your attention. It is 16 stories high. Buckingham Palace is a great attraction and it is guarded by soldiers wearing tall fuzzy hats and red coats. People walk up and try to disturb them, however, these well-trained soldiers will not even move or bat an eye.

The citizens of England have several benefits that Americans don?t have such as free college education and free health care. However, I like New York better. There is no place like home.
