Upon further reflection, and with the assistance of some badly needed sleep, I realized that yesterday’s post was more like Day Two of the trip than Day One. No worries, the experiential component far outweighs the chronological, and so, as the saying goes; It’s all good.
Disclaimer: I may on occasion return to rewrite a passage due to an unintended, important omission or an egregious timeline error.
Now back to our present muse – London, England. Obviously we passed by and glanced at, Big Ben – what proper trip to London would allow otherwise? If not for the sheer joy of seeing this iconic structure then, at the very least, to adjust our watches. We saw St Paul’s Cathedral, a show of both opulence and architectural genius. A lesser show of genius would be my inability to figure out how to rotate the photo below. I’m not giving up however, if I can’t change it here, perhaps I can elsewhere. My children teach me (after I taught them, they are returning the favor) not to give up. I shall return…
Ah! The rewards of perseverance! That was a detour, but in the inimitable words of John Lennon: “Life is what happens to you while you’re busy making other plans.”
Since the real Day One wasn’t discussed, suffice it to say it was the day after our 6 hour flight and the 5 hour time difference, so not a whole lot happened. We walked the area around the hotel because the room was not ready, then we were placed in a room that had NO dresser for clothing, then we got another room (an upgrade, I believe) into which they brought two small dressers because apparently hotels in London don’t believe in them. Dinner was in one of the hotel restaurants, we were simply too tired to bother with anything more complicated. So, Day One’s post was really Day Two, which would make this Day Three. The following three days were busy, event filled, and amazing, I shall continue with them tomorrow . After that, it will be on to Paris.
