London Calling

We arrived in sunny(!) London on Tuesday arvo, and headed straight to Hyde Park with YDG for KFC and Rose wine by the duck pond! Later that night we had famous Roast Duck from The Four Seasons chinese restaurant in Bayswater, complete with Duck Nazi style waitress, down the road from YDG and Eric's place.

Over the next few days we saw a few of the classic sites - Tower of London, London Eye, Westminster and Big Ben, Trafalger Square, Buckingham Palace, Camden Markets, Harrods and things pointed out along the way by YDG our illustrious tour guide. And we enjoyed more of the good things - shopping at H&M and window shopping along Oxford Circus, eating and general bumming around with old friends and of course the reason for our trip... to celebrate Kim's big birthday!

I wish we could have stayed another week or two just to hang out and check out London! Instead I had to try and cram all my luggage into the backpack and a new pink wheely bag (bought in Turkey) and catch that plane!

Next stop: Tokyo
