Travelling across the Atlantic to London

Brice and I made it to London today. The eight hour plane ride was actually quite smooth (with the exception of the landing....close to perfect!). I was a little curious as to what Thomas Cook airlines would be like. I've never been in such tiny, closely compacted seats. I don't know what someone with long legs would have done. Hooray for being short! The food was pretty good. I tried to get some sleep but it didn't happen.
Brice and I actually saw quite a few things today. It helps that I've been to London a few times before. We started off with a train ride to Victoria station (pretty central) where it took a little bit to figure out what type of Underground pass we needed.
We were hoping to try and stay awake at least until 7pm to try and adjust to the time difference. We saw the National Gallery where a bunch of stuff is blocked off because of the Tour de France. We saw Big Ben, the parliament buildings, Westminister Abbey, Picadilly Circus, Buckingham Palace, Hyde park, and Leicester square where all the playhouses of London are. By the time 2 pm rolled around, we were both dragging our butts and soooooo tired.
Brice is amazed at how many people there are here. The Underground was packed this morning with morning rush hour....wall to wall people everywhere. It's nice to have been here before because I know what to expect which, when you're super tired, is a good thing. I'll save the adventurous parts of this trip for when I've gotten some sleep.
I hope all is well at home. Miss everyone lots....xoxo :) San
