Day 2 Arrival
Made it across the pond with no problems! Sleep was decent. Woke as the sun was rising, which was beautiful to see. Had a nice breakfast of yogurt and a blueberry muffin. We met our guide Mary, with the green polka dot purse, at the terminal. She is very pleasant and organized. Took a 30 min bus ride to the hotel and caught and quick nap- we all took advantage of that! Arrived to the hotel, a little before check in and Mary was gracious and allowed us to use her room to freshen up. We walked a couple of blocks to a small supermarket for a sandwich (ham salad sandwich is not like mom’s ham salad- it is slices of ham with lettuce! Makes sense). We ate in a small park were locals were taking advantage of the bright summer weather to play in the park. Next we were off to learn the tube and a take a double decker bus tour. The weather is amazing!!
