Across the Pond
Well, after a loooooong wait in the airport and a trip across the pond, we made it to London! We arrived in the city around 1:30, checked into our hotel, and started exploring. We went on a narrated bus tour on the top of a double decker bus, and got off at the Tower of London. Brian really enjoyed learning about all of the executions that took place there. Me, not so much. But I did enjoy the rest of it, including seeing the most giant diamond ever! After that we were starving so we got back on the bus and found a sweet pub. Oh yeah, to get to the pub we walked by Shakespeare's Globe and over the Millenium Bridge. After eating we walked back over the Thames River to the Tate Modern and saw some Picasso, Mondrian, and other weird things that were supposed to be art? It's now 8:40, but we are both so tired that we've decided to head home for the night and get a fresh start tomorrow. We're off to Stonehenge, Windsor Castle, and Oxford. I'll try to write more tomorrow and also post some pictures. (I left my cord in the hotel.) Until then, Cheers!
