London

Day 1 and 2 of being within London.

storm 20 °C

We finally hit London town after a marathon flight. The flight was pretty good, we were on the A380 man it's big and we had the very last row of seats at the back. It's amazing how much you can put up with when your in a metre square of real estate for 12 hours and some ethnic guy is hukking a left lung every twenty minutes, some little kid is screaming his or her lungs out and everytime the fat dude in front of you moves you think the seat is going to break and fall back severing your legs above the knees. We did have some pretty freaky turbulence which coincided with me in toilet right the middle of it then the announcement and seat belt sign come on while I'm bouncing around thinking will I be found cheeks side up covered in blue loo dye by the hostie.

We have spent the day doing the tourist thing walking around checking out the palace, Westminster Abbey, Parliament and Big Ben. The heat of Singapore has been replaced with almost wintry London. The weather today was chilly this morning by our standards, but there were commuters sweating it up. It turned ugly in the afternoon with thunderstorms and rain which managed to ruin our sushi lunch in the park.

No use complaining about traffic in Adelaide after this trip because the traffic here is manic. The ride in from the airport the driver had a sat nav that beeped everytime we got close to a speed camera and it was beeping constantly. Never seen so many black S-class Merc's either.
