We just had 2 short days here in London, but we managed to cram a billion things in.
1. We arrived on Saturday to the hotel around 4 pm and hit the rode. We had a nice dinner and then saw The Lion King. It was a really fun show and so weird to be on the other side.
2. After the show we walked through Trafalger Square and Piccadilly Circus.
3. Sunday morning we desperately wanted to get to a service at Westminster Abbey. We set our alarm early (it was an 8 am service!) and after a series of unfortunate events ending with me pleading with the guard to let us in, we did not get to a service. We did a quick tour of the Parliament and headed off to the changing of the guard. Then we shamelessly spent the rest of the day at Harrods. You know me, I can walk down every aisle at the drugstore so this was heaven. I didn't even manage to get around even 2 of their floors. We even had our lunch there at a little diner.
4. Our last event of the day was seeing Mahler 8 played by the Royal Philharmonic Orchestra at Royal Albert Hall.
Now, on to Paris!
