Well after staying in the hotel most of the day, we headed to the tube station to buy our travel tickets. Apparently credit cards are quite rare in the UK as everyone looks mad when I hand them one and the machines would not take our card. We had to walk to a bigger station that had an attendant and of course got lost and my legs were burning from walking. My legs are totally exhausted from all this walking! Thank goodness London seems to be less hilly. Anyway we finally got our travel cards and I was really upset and overwhelmed by all the people. Of course my wonderful husband always calms me down. Gush gush gush.
Well we finally got into London around 10.30 last night. We got to our hotel and it's the smallest room I've ever been in. We can't put our bags flat on the floor even! We haven't left the hotel yet (almost noon) because we're still adjusting to London. It's obviously quite a bit bigger than Edinburgh and we find ourselves really missing Scotland and the quaint beautiful feel or Edinburgh. There are just so many people here! I'm sure once we get out and about it's going to be great but, just like our first day in Edinburgh, we need some time to adjust.
Soon we'll head out for some food and to get our travel cards so we can ride the tube and buses.

Well today has been kind of a bummer. We checked out of our fantastic hotel (where last night we took an awesome bubble bath with jets while drinking champagne and eating chocolate) and got to the train station no problem. We got on our train (first class!) but after about 45 minutes we stopped for 2 and 1/2 hours due to communication errors or something. We're still on the train and are due into London at 10.30. Ugh. Luckily we have an audio book to listen to and they've been lavishing snacks and hot chocolates on us.
Tomorrow we are doing... something. I'm not really sure. I think I put down the British museum for tomorrow but we might also try and get some other sight seeing in before heading to see some family friends, Mary and Jeffry.
