          grab a taxi back to Foley Street. London taxis are the most civilized on the planet.
          The drivers know every street and lane, speak the Queen’s English properly and

The afternoon was our free time and we were split in three. Micki, Ethan and Alex went to a football game, Cole visited family, and the rest of us managed three items.
