Hello From London!

Some thoughts on the way over:

  • US Airways website is S-L-O-W.  Nice, but man, it’s slow.
  • Their inflight entertainment system, in a word, sucks.  It runs Windows too – I got to stare at a blue screen of death for roughly 4 hours, after they shut down and rebooted the entire system three times.

Some thoughts from our time so far:

  • The weak dollar sucks.  It was like a hundred bucks to take the nice train from Gatwick to Victoria station.
  • London still has phone booths, everywhere.  It’s really odd seeing them, as I can’t remember the last time I’ve seen one in the US
  • Sara doesn’t do very well with jetlag.  Especially when she has a cold.
  • I don’t do very well in the cold.
  • In England, bacon is “streaky bacon”.  Bacon in England is like ham or something.  I liked it, Sara says “gross”.
  • If you ask what black pudding is, they’ll tell you, and then they’ll give you a free sample, which you then have to try.  I’ve had worse.
  • Harrods is nuts – total pandemonium.
  • Don’t let your Original Bus Tour pass expire at the end of a day when you’re cold, it’s dark, and you’re trying to get somewhere.
  • My feet are killing me.
