Anyway, as we taxied, Colleen or Adora kept saying "are we about to take off," and Emma would, very authoritatively, say “no.” J
I got to witness Emma during take off (let’s just say it’s not one of her favorite things about traveling) and by the time dinner came around I had a really horrible headache
Meanwhile, throughout the flight we each got to individually take advantage of the in flight entertainment. (30 Rock and Castle for me, Date Night and Dear John for Emma, Percy Jackson and the Olympians and Cougar Town for Adora and CSI and Percy Jackson for Colleen).
When we finally arrived in London, we, of course had to go through customs. Our agent was really funny. He asked us our ages and, upon hearing them, replied “ah, so you’re here to drink,” which we found hilarious. He was very nice. Then we got on the good old tube towards Cockfosters (a name which I found quite funny the last time I was in London and this time amused Adora and Emma). After 23 stops, we got off at Kings Cross and boarded the 73 bus. Which took us by Angel Station and through some very cute parts of London. We also met a very nice woman, who inquired about our travels and where we were from. When we got off, we walked past my favorite curry shop to the house we are staying in for the next six days. Thanks Tierl for letting us crash in your living room! Now we are all exhausted! Later Turkish food for dinner and then the world cup match! J
