MGX-I drank the punch
Weekend in London
Well, we just got back from a long weekend in London and we want to share with you our latest adventures. On the right you will see some pictures from our romps through London. The first day we landed late and had dinner at this strange Pub called the Churchill Arms where we met my old boss and her husband but the pub was a Thai restaurant. The next day we did a lot of walking must have been 12km, we went to Big Ben, Westminster Abbey, changing of the guard, St. James in the Field Cathedral, St. James park, Buckingham Palace, National Gallery and dinner at a Belgium Restaurant and met our friends’ boyfriend-Mike at a quirky little Pub in Notting Hill Neighborhood to listen to music.
The third day it rained a lot so we spent most of the time using the underground. The second picture is the millennium bridge that we took to the Tate Museum. This bridge was over budget and did not open on its target date of 2000, it cost 10 million pounds to build! We headed to the Tate Museum and saw a play at the Shakespeare Globe and had lunch at a vegetarian restaurant called Neil’s Yard. The play was really cool, it is the top picture and it was open air and no roof. The bad thing is it rained the whole time and the people standing in front of the stage got soaked. Greg was smart and saw an area on the far right side of the stage where we had a good view and stayed dry. My favorite part was our futbal game Chelsea versus Burnley. The crazy thing is no beer drinking in your seats, only in the food area. If that was the case in Germany no one would be at the futbal games.
Greg’s favorite part of the trip was our ride on the London Eye. The next 2 pictures. Our friend in Munich, Steve Murphy help build it. He told us that when they opened they did a big commemoration to breast cancer and he had to tied huge pink ribbons on top of each pod. The view was amazing and it takes 30 minutes to go all the way around. There is a cute kids 4D movie you watch before the trip-Greg liked the pictures of us in the funny glasses, we’ll spare you from viewing.
