In London

Hello from London - double decker buses, the Thames, black taxis, pies, pints and freezing cold weather! This morning we woke up to news that it had snowed here overnight and yes there was snow on the ground around where we are staying - cool!!! - literally as well! We did the Hop-on-Hop-off bus here today which included a boat cruise on the Thames as well - lovely and warm in there. We saw lots of the city - visited St Paul's Cathedral (more tears!), saw the London Eye, crossed London bridge, crossed Tower bridge, saw the Houses of Parliament, Big Ben.......... the list goes on. It's a great way to see lots of the city and stop and visit and see what you want. The ticket lasts for 48 hours so we will use it again tomorrow to visit Buckingham Palace and some more sights - if we're really organised I might squeeze in a visit to Harrods - drove past tonight on the way back to Paddington - which by the way has Paddington bears everywhere!!! Cute - some might find their way into my bag for some little girl I know! The one downfall of London (as Wetsern Europe) is that it is VERY expensive. Hopefully will find a cheaper internet service in Cornwall and can upload some photos.
Love to everyone,
Kerrie and James xxxx
