I haven't slept for over 24 hours

We began our trip by waking up at 5:30 in Seattle. Then we flew to New York's JFK airport. There we sat on the tarmac for an hour while they tried to shut the cargo door. Then we were off, for another 6 hours to Hethrow Airport in London at 7:00 AM London time. And we've been up ever since, exploring London, finding our hostel and trying not to fall asleep at the same time on the tube (London Underground) so our bags wouldn't get ripped off. Now I'm sitting here just hoping that the sun will go down soon so we can get some sleep.
My body is confused because it thinks it is very late, but the sun is out.
London is cool, it feels a lot like New York except it is cleaner and the cars are on the wrong side of the road. Oh, and I would never try to drive here, there is no rhyme or reason to how the streets are layed out. I'm pretty sure there isn't a straight road in the city, no grid system to fall back on. That and you are lucky if you can find a street sign. If there is one, it is on the side of the nearest building rather than on a post, go figure.
Tomorrow we are going to continue our checking out London. The next day we will hit up stone henge in the morning then catch a train to our next destination. Where will that be? I have no idea, so stay tuned...
