Yeah! We went to London! More specifically, I went to London!
I went to a College where going abroad for a year or a semester wasn't something that a lot of people did. In fact, I can think of 3 people that went away for one semester Junior year and I thought that they were crazy. I only had eight semesters in College, I could not imagine giving one of them up!
Thankfully, twenty plus years later, my world is a little bigger. A few years ago I went on a Tudor, Middle Ages reading frenzy and I have been dying to see London ever since. Tom had to work there a couple of days, it was a bank holiday, it was time. And it was great. I loved it!
The Tower of London, the place I most wanted to see.
The Tower Bridge
The London Wall
The Rainforest Cafe - deplorable food, the boys loved it!
The phone booth shot. I had to.
10 Downing Street- may have a new occupant soon.
Preparing to change the guard
The Princess Diana Memorial Fountain
The Princess Diana Memorial Playground- really amazing
This is a Pirate ship on the South Bank. It was closed, but I was so glad to see the neighborhood that it's in- Southwark I think
The three party leaders - Election Day was May 6th. It resulted in a hung Parliament. At the time of this writing the Prime Minister is undetermined. The boys loved the giant head balloons though!
I had no idea that there once was a Clink Prison!
We really covered a LOT of ground. OK, I would have gone into a lot of old churches if I did not have the buggy. That's OK because I know that I will be back!
