Well, it's been a busy few months since the last post. Spent the Christmas holidays in London. Beautiful city. Difficult to imagine all the history there even as you walk around and see it. Flew in on Christmas eve day, so by the time we got out and started walking around a bit there wasn't too much open, but it there also weren't any crowds. Found a wonderful cathedral for midnight mass. Large, empty and very dark until midnight when the priest proclaimed the birth of Christ, the entire sanctuary was illuminated. Altar boys and girls lined both sides of the sanctuary ringing bells and banging drum. Beautiful and well done. It was also incredibly warm for the time of year, so it was pleasant walking around the major tourist section in the city center. It was almost as if we had the city to ourselves. Spent a majority of Christmas Day walking, but were able to find a very nice restaurant in the Sheraton for Christmas dinner. Found a few pubs open and ended up back at the room around 8:00. Tube was open on the 26th, Tower bridge was a disapointment and didn't feel like standing in line for the Tower of london. Spent some time at Picadilly Circus. Went to a play there on Saturday, and spen most of Sunday getting back out.Starting Over...Again
