After our intial setback in Marina del Rey, we were very excited to head off to London.  Since it was a direct, red-eye flight, it would've been a perfect opportunity to take our ambien and sleep through the whole flight.  Instead, we get super excited about the personal TV sets on our seats and watched 3 movies and a TV show each.  So by the time we got into London, we were blood shot and exhausted.  But at least we got to watch the free movies.

Connie's brother, David, took us to a couple of pubs, museums, and to the theater to see Avenue Q, which was very funny.  Here's the scary goth pub he took us to that was blasting hard-core metal and had a concrete room shaped  ;like a tomb with graffiti all  over the walls.  

We went to the Tower of London, the British Museum, and a bunch fo the other tourist s ights you're supposed to visit .  It was 
a bit cold and drizzly, which  has been a little bit of a&nbs p;bum mer.  It's also ridiculously expens ive with the exchange rat e being
2 pounds per dollar.  One bus ride cost us $4.  So we've done our best to be cheap (easy for Connie, harder for Jeremy).  Overall, it's been a nice visit.  Next destination: Prague, Czech Republic.

thanks for the nifty towel
it'll come in handy my next holiday. At least you didn't forget your glasses, right?

Btw, that bridge you took the photo in front of was Tower Bridge, London Bridge is the next one over, very boring looking. You've just joined a long line of Americans who've made that mistake, starting with the one who bought and shipped the London Bridge back to Arizona, thinking he was getting the Tower Bridge.

Anyway, was fun having you over, next time try to aim for the weekend and I'll really show you London
