Pup #2 and I are in London. I will post some photos once I pay the extortion price my hotel is asking for Internet access. For now, I am happily typing away in a cheap Internet cafe (£1.50 for 75 minutes).
My niece Ani's new fave song is Kiss's I want to Rock-n-Roll All Night. (She thinks it's by the "Kisses" and that the lyric is "and go to birthday parties every day".) Let me tell you, after traveling and being up all night, my ability to party every day is somewhat limited! I am always amazed how a 7-hour flight actually takes 17-hours and that's without the 5-hour time difference! I really just chalk that up to the price you pay to travel internationally, but it does boggle my mind.
We spent a good chunk of our day touring London on the open upper deck of a double decker bus. As I said, I don't have any photos of my own to share, but here's a close one.
Even though the weather was very similar to how it looks in the photo, I think I got a little sunburn. I love these buses. The non-tour buses are all two levels as well. It's just fun.
The other very *British* thing we did was share a few pints. I had Greene King IPA (which I thought I remembered liking from other trips, but didn't really dig it today) and Pup #2 had the Fuller's London Pride, which was much nicer (and higher in alcohol, I might add). I think the plan is to have dinner later and have a couple of more. The truth is, I think we'll both be hitting the hay a little early tonight, so we'll see.
