London

    I was in London for all of a day. I flew in at about 6pm one evening, had the following day in London, then flew out at 9am the day after. It was not a long trip.

    I spend the first half of the day with my parents, wandering around London doing the tourist thing. Visiting the Houses of Parliment, seeing the Queen, lamenting not having enough money to buy anything in Harrods, the usual.

    The second half of the day I spent wandering through the Victoria and Albert Museum. I had never been there before on my previous trips. Well worth the time to wander through, a lot of very impressive things.

    In the evening I caught up with Bas and JM who had escaped to London six months earlier. Both seemed to be adapting well enough, although I didn't measure the temperature of their beer to see if they had been fully assimilated.

    It was a good trip, I just wish I could have been there for a little longer
