UK - DAY TWO...MORE Mini's EVERYWHERE :)

We are both very jet lagged. Hungary at odd hours and we can't sleep through the night yet. We were both up at 2:30 am last night and went for an hour walk to try to find some snack. It was good b/c we were able to sleep another 5 hours :)

Today we went to Notting Hill. It is like the Glebe in the summer but 9x's as busy and as you go further down the street you get some more ethinic stores and stands. David and I bought one strange item..a head massage thing. I'll have to show you so you know what I'm talking about. We then took in a bus tour - Hop ON/Hop OFF. It's a great way to see the city. We hopped off at Tafalger Square and took lots of pictures. People are very friendly here. David wanted a picture of himself there since it was the third time he was there and has two other pictures of himself at the same location. We got a funny picture of me looking up at him and you can see the statue behind him.

The weather here changes every 2 minutes. Sun, rain, myst, everything but snow. We were on the hop on/hop off bus this afterooon and we got dumped on..then the sun came out and we had a very bright rainbow. David took some fantastic photos of the London tower bridge..lots to see and do.

For dinner we went to china town and had PHO (soup). It was not the same as the PHO we enjoy in Ottawa but it filled our stomachs. After dinner we were walking to the Burger King to do our nightly blog and David suddenly decided to get someone to do my portrait on the street. I'm NEVER had this done before. It turned out pretty good for a 20 minute drawing :)

Now we are ready to go back to our hotel and try to sleep. It will be nice when we are no longer jet lagged.

Tomorrow we are planning to do the boat cruise of the Thames and the EYE of London..a big ferris wheel that you can see all of London. Finally we are meeting David's friend Bret for diner. David has the directions of where to meet him..I don't know what restaurant we are going to. We will ask him which show we should see while we are here if we decide to go to one.

I best sign off for now. The best thing about London so far is the architecture...I've never seen so many interesting (old) buildings EVERYwhere. :)

Cheers,
Veronica & David
