... wondering if we might end up with a bill from Avis but so far so good. I took lots of photos of the car, the office and the guy just for evidence in case we had given the vehicle to a complete stranger and opportunist. We finally met up with Danny and Paul about 2 hours late. Thank heavens we both knew we would meet up in the end - less optimistic people would have left hours earlier and given up! We stopped and had a pub dinner, a ...
So it's Monday morning and we are on the way to Heathrow Airport for our 13.15 flight to Rio. It still doesn't feel like we are leaving for a year! We have had a stressy few days getting sorted but I have finally managed to get my bag down to 12kg!! (I won't mention the fact that KBs is about 16/17kg and full of my stuff!) ...
... jokes at gathering crowds and entertained with magic, juggling and slack lines. Pigeons are a real pest in London. As I sat eating a baked potato some of these very brave birds took any chance they could to dig in to my lunch. Next we had a nosey around Leicester Square. We popped into M+M world where everything M+M can be found spread through four floors. They have M+Ms in all the colours of the rainbow as well as all the colours that aren’t in this arch ...
What a wonderful night we had last evening at Warhorse. On the suggestion of friends of ours (thanks Leigh Renai) who had seen it in NY, we decided to take the girls while in London. A fantastic show where the story is less important than the mastery of the puppets. The horse puppets were so incredibly realistic that we kept looking for the guys following behind to pick up the poo. The New London Theatre was a lot different to the much smaller Ambassador Theatre ...
... tickets for the Royal Ascot anyway and am planning on seeing the Thames Pagent and the Jubilee concert from the park.
Tips from London:
-Salmon Fishing in the Yemen is a terrible movie. Don't even bother.
-Don't eat 'pastys'. They're like Hot Pockets but worse.
-H&M will have 8000 of whatever you want in the size bigger or smaller than yours but never your own size.
See you all soon!

Historical Traveler Reviews Leisure Inn London
Good for budget hotel
My family and I stayed in December 2004 in a quad ensuite room. Clean adequate place to stay. Better than average breakfast with eggs and toast. Nice extra. Close to tube station, restaurants, and shopping center.
When we got there, there had been a leak the night before and one of the quad rooms were out of commission. We were given the choice to staying at the hotel or at a 2 bedroom flat nearby. Well, we chose the flat which was beautiful and very large. (Only the kitchen needed some work, the rest of the place was great) We had a terrace, huge windows, and great comfortable beds. With 2 boys, aged 15 and 12, the space was appreciated. We walked to the hotel for breakfast, which I enjoyed, my kids found the food a bit boring. The location was great. We were right near the tube, the rail station, and many conveniences. The famous Peter Pan statue was right inside the nearby gate to Hyde Park. All in all, I would definitely recommend this hotel.
Clogged Shower and Expensive Rate
We stayed at the Leisure Inn for two nights in April 2004. When we arrived the shower was clogged and I informed the front desk attendant. He said that he would send a plumber to unclog the drain. The second day the drain was obviously still clogged. There also was no air conditioning, so be prepared if it is a warm day in summer. In addition, the morning buffet consisted of orange Tang, coffee, tea, hardboiled eggs, white toast, butter and jelly. This was all for 109 pounds (approximately $200) for a triple. Quite expensive for what you get!
I wouldn't go here again, but they did one good thing
Me and my girlfriend booked this hotel late january 2003 for 2 nights. We booked a double room for £35 per night. When we arrived late at night and wanted to check in, the guy told us they had a "little plumbage problem" and told us we would have to stay at an other hotel which they provided for us. This was the good part of the stay since the hotel they gave us instead "The Duke of Leinster", had a wonderful room with panorama view and was clean and freash. This hotel took great care of us and their breakfast was good. The second night we tried again to check in at Leisure Inn, and this time it worked. The room was very little (supposed to be a double room), it was badly cleaned and the "bathroom" more or less looked like something they built them self over a night or so.
