London Vacation!!!

Well, it was a 6 day vacation for one of us. The other one (Tom) was there on business. We took the Eurostar right into London. It is such a quick and easy way to travel between these 2 countries. Here we are entering The Chunnel. This is the first time that I was able to get us entering into The Chunnel.


Regent's Park...


I should've brought my roller blades!!

We saw the musical "Avenue Q" on the West End. It's a funny and quirky show that won 3 Tony Awards when it was on Broadway.
Speakers' Corner in Hyde Park....

Hyde Park...


Enjoying a pint of ale...


ChinaTown...really, really good food. We ate at 2 different Chinese restaurants.



Rehydrating at a different pub...

I saw "We will Rock You" the musical of Queen's music. Unbelievable!! Brought back a lot of memories from my youth!


I also saw the musical "Billy Elliot". What a great story! The young boy that plays Billy is the most fabulous singer, ballet dancer, actor, tap dancer, gymnast - incredible!


We had dinner at a friend's house outside of London and had the most delicious Indian food that I've ever had. Tom also learned how to cook chapaties and can't wait to try out his new recipes. We both love Indian food and this was our 3rd night eating Indian for dinner.





The next 2 pictures are where we spent New Year's in 1988 (?). I'm not very good with dates or details...




On our way back to Paris on the Eurostar... Tom is right - business traveling is NOT easy!!
