London - Days 2 and 3

I have to say the internet connection I have at the Easy Hotel is horrible. It sucks actually. I am not posting as much as I'd like because of it. Maybe I'll have a better connection at the hotel in Paris or India. I've just spent several hours trying to upload photos and more than half failed. I need to get to bed now because I am getting picked up for my trip to Paris at 4:45 a.m. tomorrow. I'll be staying over night in Paris, getting back late Saturday night. I don't know when the next time is that I'll be able to post.

Yesterday I toured the British Museum and took several pictures there (that I haven't been able to show yet). I also toured the West End of London which includes the theater and Soho districts. This is my favorite area in London. After a really nice supper at the Criterion at Piccadilly Circus I attended Mamma Mia at the Prince of Whales Theatre. ABBA is one of my favorite bands so I really enjoyed the performance.



Don't know what these horses are but this photo is only one of a few that I am in so I thought I would share it. Some stranger was kind enough to take it for me.

Today I did the Westminster walk and then went back to Soho and did some shopping. Picked up some really cute things at the Octopus which does not have a website yet but when they do I will be sure to share the link because they have the coolest stuff!!! The person who worked there told me that there would be online shopping.

I have posted more pictures on facebook.

And just so you know, Lydia, Bows is having a great time too. Here she is at Big Ben...
...and at Parliament...

...and at the London Eye on the Thames River...
...and finally relaxing after a long day.

I love you Lydia!
