Show trip route
Thursday we met with Diane's class and toured the Bevis Marks Synagogue, Britain's oldest synagogue, it was built in the same period as St Paul's and has many of the same details used by Christopher Wren. Then we made our way to Trafalgar Square and The National Gallery. Once again surrounded by history and art; truly mind boggling. That night we went to a performance of Avenue Q in Leicester Square (hmmm... fly from Boston to London to watch a show based in a NYC "muppet world"???)
Friday, while waiting for sleepy head Diane, we took a walk around the Regents' Garden area next to her school. A very lovely area but we were too early in the season to experience all the roses and other flowers
Sunday was a wonderful Easter meal with family; Elaine had a fantastic feast with lamb. After dinner Ray found out why you should never fall asleep with your granddaughters nearby, nice job with the makeup kids! By this time Diane had arrived in Spain and was starting a well deserved "beach relaxation" vacation.
And one last thing.... Easter in London, it SNOWED!! So before dinner snow bunnies were made and a snowball fight even occurred, oh those silly Brits!
We now relinquish control of this blog and allow Diane to continue.
Love to all, R&F
PS. Diane, you have made us very proud!
