London Day 1

It is 2 a.m. London time. It's been a long but fun day. The flight wasn't so bad because there was an empty seat next to me so I was able to lay down and sleep for 4 or 5 hours. I found my way to my hotel pretty easily via the Underground (tube). Today I saw the Tower of London and the Tower Bridge. I didn't take the tour of the Tower of London though because I arrived 30 minutes before closing. I may go back to do the tour. I also took a 2 hour London by Night sightseeing tour which was worth the 15 p.

Some things I noticed today:
1. People in London walk really fast and there are lots of steps everywhere! I'm a fast walker, or so I thought, and had a hard time keeping up.
2. Pop comes in 2 Liter bottles vs. 1
3. They hand out free newspapers all over the place
4. No washcloths??

I took 111 pictures today. Too many to post here. I will get them up on Flickr or something like that soon. I'm here and safe and hitting the rack! Good day for now...cheerio.
