Monday night we went to bed at 10 PM after arriving in London at 6 AM by jet. I slept 12 straight hours to 10 AM. That is one way to beat jet lag - just sleep :-)
When we got up Tuesday morning - owe everything in the apartment in its place. It is hard decorating 11 rooms with only 2 roller bags of stuff. We got showered and had a nice breakfast because Lulu got groceries as soon as we arrived.
I will do a video of the apartment shortly. It is huge - 5 BR - 4 baths - the living room has 5 love seats - there are 12 beds - 2 refrigerators - 2 stoves - dishwasher - washer - dryer. There are to gigantic steel tubs. It is on the first floor and the ground floor - their term for a basement. The showers have individual tankless water heaters - instant on - very stable hot water.
Around noon - we walked south to the John Hunter Anatomy Museum (free admission). It is a curious collection of medical samples. I will return there to take secret pictures - they do not allow regular cameras. The museum is on the campus of the London School of Economics.
After a nice sit down lunch - we stopped at a shop to buy sim cards for our iPhones. We bought 2 Lebara cards for our iPhones for 13 pounds each - about $17. For that you get iPhone service for a month - 2 GB of wifi per iPhone - texts messages - 1000 phone minutes - and free calls between the phones. The guy put the card sin our phones and tested each phone. Total bill was 26 pounds including tax. For that small amount - we can use all the features on our iPhones - just like back in the USA where we pay $150 a month for that service. Tell me again how everything in America is better.
After that we went to Trafalgar Square - walked to Parliament - took pictures of Big Ben - crossed the river - walked along the banks of the Thames - went shopping in Lulu's favorite store - Primark. Then we stopped at FSU campus on the way home - getting back around 6 PM. Lulu said we walked 5.6 miles. My feet do not feel it but I am tired. It is now 7 PM here - supper times- but we are not hungry yet.
We saw the theaters where - Kinky Boots and the Carol King Show are. We plan to see them.
