Fireworks in the sky over the Thames River, Countdown at Trafalgar Square, ringing bells of the Big Ben... A new year has arrived. A new beginning has started.
New year celebration is interesting in London. A few main locations such as along Thames River, at the Westminster near Big Ben, and Trafalgar Square, have always been the main locations for New Year Eve Countdown. The places are always EXTREMELY crowded, and I found it no different than last year countdown - still jammed with people as usual. :-)
This year, 2 minutes of silence were dedicated to the recent Tsunami victims. It was touching to see everyone quietened down to give their sympathy to the suffered ones.
Wish everyone a Happy New Year. Have a great year ahead.
