London I.i

So we actually DID make it to London. We even got stopped at customs and were questioned, searched, and told to wait. It took an hour to get through and we were given stern warnings: "You'd better not get any jobs here in England!" I was just glad we made it through and weren't turned back to America...

And then we had to find a place to stay that night because our previous plans would no longer be working out. There was a medical emergency that unfortunately makes it impossible to stay with Chuck's Aunt for a few weeks. So we (probably mostly myself) panicked a bit, but managed to set up a Bed and Breakfast for that night via one of those "Hotels 50% Off!" stands. It was called Romano's Hotel and it was pretty dingy and tiny with thin walls, but it got the job done.

We've had a nicer day today. We went and saw Westminster Abbey, the London Eye, and Buckingham Palace. We're trying to get pictures uploaded right now so hopefully we'll be able to have them posted here on the blog in a couple of days - it all depends on whether we can get to the internet or not! I'll write again as soon as I can!
