Day 3-London

On Saturday we woke up at 3:30am so we could make our 6am flight to London. We really needed some coffee this morning. Around 9am we arrived in London. We found the street our hotel is on, but had a hard time finding it. A British lady stopped and asked if we needed help and we told her we were lost. She ended up using her cell phone and called the hotel to ask for directions. She was very nice! We found the hotel, dropped off our bags, and went to explore London. Our hotel was close to Buckingham Palace so we walked there and looked around, walked to Westminster, Big Ben and the London Eye.
We found some fish and chips for lunch (we still like Ivar's best). By this time we were exhausted because we were up so early, so we went to St. James Park and sat down and relaxed for a bit. We looked through our Rick Steves book and looked for something to do later in the day. We decided to go back to the hotel to rest and freshen up and then we would walk to Harrod's and Hyde Park.

For dinner we went to Harrod's for tea, sandwiches and scones, mmmmmmmmmmm. We also had fun looking around the massive store. It is amazing how much stuff is in Harrod's, they even have Armani baby clothes. After window shopping we walked over to Hyde Park. Kim was excited to see swans swimming in the lake. We walked around for a little while, but our feet were hurting from all of our walking so we decided to walk back to the hotel. On our walk back we saw four Ferraris. We are looking forward to starting our tour tomorrow!
