Highlight!! The Adventure to get tickets to "Wicked" - Free!!
Arrived at hotel about 8 a.m. and slept for 6 hours! Hopped the Tube to Leistersquare to 1/2 price ticket booth for tickets to Wicked - hottest musical on in London (soon to be in Vancouver - GO!!) but alas not on on Sunday and too new for 1/2 price tickets. Back on the tube to Victoria Station to Apollo Theatre - keep forgetting how wonderful these old small theatres are. Because of lightening? storm? all computers were down so you can imagine the difficulty to get tickets. There were seats available but no ability to purchase except through Ticketmaster - no phone - Bevin befriended a Brit who was awesome, got 3 tickets for a French family as they needed a translator but by the time she was ordering ours and 3 more, 7:30 (show time) passed and nothing could be done for the rest of us :(
So now back "home" at Canary Wharf Hilton - cheap!! and breakfast and snacks all day long in Executive lounge. We were always curious about the Wharf - modern London which seems odd but works for now - will take ferry on the Thames to come and go tomorrow. London has established what looks like a super "rent a bike" program so after Easter Sunday church at St. Paul's Cathedral - we'll explore more of London by bike as after all - "Anyone who is bored in London, is bored of life" - can't remember who's quote but works!
