December 23 & 24, 2006...
"Cliff-notes" version of our adventure...
Arrived in London after a very long flight. Met Bill who took us to flat. He's buddies with one of the guys in Iron Maiden
, or cleans his house or something.. :)
...Very cold. Took while for flat to warm up. Took nap.
Went for walk to find grocery store and to find hotel to leave from for tour tomorrow. Couldn't find hotel - too far away. Called to switch pick up site. Had dinner at a pub. John flirted with the waitress. Drank cider beer. Watched Deal or No Deal. Went to bed early.
