Hi, all — I’m having a fantastic time :-)
Yesterday was Paris — the Louvre and Eiffel Tower — the only downside to the ET was that the lines were so long, it ate up several hours so we ended up having to catch the last train back to London instead of the 7:19 Eurostar like we’d planned. But the view was fantastic — sunset from the top of the ET!
In London — where to start? Victoria and Albert Museum, National Portrait Gallery, John Soame Museum, the Thames, Big Ben, House of Parliarment, British Museum, Hyde Park, Albert Memorial, Albert Hall, Covent Garden. Wednesday night we saw Madame Butterly at the Royal Opera House, which was fantastic, possibly one of the single most beautiful things I’ve ever experienced.
There’s still lots on the list to go — we’re going to do the British National and the Tate sometime in the next couple of days. And today my host has promised me we’ll take one of the tour buses — drive by photo ops, hooray!
