... brought a GD knife through security...ugh.
I got some chicken curry and waited for them to announce the gate.
I ran into Cara in the boarding area before we headed to our respective seats, on this leg I was on Premium Economy which was still very nice.
Next stop DC and home....thank god, these flights are tiring.
So...an update: after the pain and discomfort in my foot yesterday, and a terrible night trying to sleep without dosing myself with painkillers, I awoke to discover some bruising and tenderness on my left foot, and after a quick check online, "diagnosed" myself with a stress fracture. I have no idea exactly how it happened or where it's broken, or even if it is, but I would rather work under the assumption that it is and rest it as much ...
... around the gallery just admiring. That all took me roughly two hours, then after a break for lunch, I headed back into the maze of the museum for another hour to get a look at a few of the other more iconic items housed in the museum. These included an Easter Island head, the Lewis chessman, the Standard of Ur, and several others.
One thing I found really interesting was a reconstruction of the face of an ...
... and then headed back to my digs. Most of my time on this trip seems to be spent doing three things: drinking loads of soft drinks due to the heat, locating toilets due to the soft drinks and registering for various free WiFi services. And faffing in between. I'm usually all clued up about what my plans are, but the heat is making me indecisive. Nice in a way just to see what I come across but frustrating that things don't seem to materialise.
... Speaking, with Felicity Kendall (I’ve seen her now several times), and I also recognized the other actress as having played Dawn on Eastenders. It was a comedy, light and amusing. It wasn’t jam-packed like the other play.
Like I said, the weather was amazing, though a bit warm for my taste. It was nice walking back to the hotel at night, though, very pleasant.
So that brings me to the airport. I booked a shuttle to pick ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Premier Inn London King'S Cross
We've stayed in this Premier Travel Inn at least a dozen times over the last few years.
We have just returned from a 4 night stay at the York Way, Premier Travel Inn. ( Myself, wife and two children 4 & 6 ).
We decided to take our 2 children to see the captial and a bit of our countries history during the school holidays. Was very unsure of the area to book for the hotel, and after reading the reviews on this hotel, we decided to give it a whirl. The whole 3 nights stay including train travel was £315 - good price, with the kids going free. When we got to Kings Cross, the hotel was simply across the road, and easy to find with the name banners. The lobby was very bright and clean, and even though we could not check in as we were early, they kept our luggage in a safe room while we went to see the sights. Check in was quick, and the staff very friendly - security was excellent, key cards for entrance to the room area, but not the lifts. The room was very clean, very fresh, and a good size for 2 adults and 2 kids - the kids beds were pulled out from the base of the adults bed. The adults bed was massive - air con in room great and clould leave on all night without having a dry throat next day. best night sleep in ages. Breakfast was a bargin £7.50 per adult with kids eating free - good choice of buffet breakfast, and tea and coffee was provided in the room which was great ( i don't do breakfast) . There is a Tesco metro at the corner and a Starbucks, within 2 mins walk - great for crisps and drinks for the day - Pizza place near by, which we ate in our room. Overall the stay was great and i would not hesitate to recommend this hotel to anyone staying in London - especially with kids as the location is great for the train and tube. Fantastic
Stayed here one night between a trip to Edinburgh and flying home. I was visiting with my parents and stayed at the PTI in Edinburgh as well. PTIs seem to be very consistent in quality and product.
Excellent hotel -value for money and great location
Stayed here for one night with my husband. Paid £75 for the room and was pleasantly surprised at how clean and comfortable the hotel was. Didn't expect much as we thought we had got it fairly cheap for London. But the location is great - only 2 minutes from Kings Cross Station and the reception staff were extremely helpful and let us check in at 11am. Won't stay anywhere else now when I'm in London.
This hotel is somewhat new - it was in excellent condition. Desk personnel were very friendly and the room was excellent. This was the end of our time in Europe and the bed was the most comfortable of any. I am told that for London, 85 Euros for Thursday night and 75 Euros for Friday night (VAT included) was an excellent value. The room was spotless as was the bathroom. The TV had 4 radio channels and about ten TV channels.
Travel Inn is not for those who needs a five star room, but for my money, this hotel has my vote. I will not stay anywhere else when I go to London now.
We decided to stay here - mainly because alot of hotels were already booked up being Easter weekend. We were not disappointed! The reception staff were friendly and the bar staff too.
I stayed here with members of my family in two rooms - one a standard, and one a family room. The rooms, although not huge, were good for London. They were clean, with everything you'd need, and not noisy, comsidering the location. The location is great - opposite King's Cross station, but outside the congestion zone. And the family room - two adults and two children for £75 per night - has to be one of the best bargains in London.
