After a great flight on British Airways, where we even got a hot meal, (the kids had heard us talking about hot meals on planes but put it in the same era as walking to school – 5 miles – uphill – both ways)

We arrived around 1:30 in the afternoon, took a double decker bus into London, got things settled and decided to go for a little bit of a wander to just to some of the sights around us, and turns out there are quite a few within walking distance!

    Hi guys!!!
    Your photos of the Houses of Parliament are taken from just about where I used to work, the older part of St. Thomas’ Hospital. That was my view every day for a year. Get over your jet lag and have fun!!
