Off with her head!

Tube. 
We feel like we have conquered this beast. We can read the map, find where we need to go and actually do it.

Bus ride. 
It was a hop on, hop off tour today. We hopped on and then sat in some traffic. We did see a lot of sights and it helped us realise how big London is. The history here is incredible. Bits of Roman wall sit in places where you walk. 55AD. Like ... what??





The Tower of London. 
This was our first tourist stop. It was hot. 31 degrees hot. The lines weren't long though. This is a must do if you come to London. The Beefeater Tour Guide was hilarious. He did a brilliant Donald Trump impersonation. And paid out the Americans. A lot. We were in fits. 

It was a bit sobering. I think we were all very pleased we weren't royal and living in the 15th/16th Century. Being King or Queen didn't stop your head from rolling. He told a very powerful tale of Lady Jane Grey, who at barely 16 lost her head due to the decisions men made around her. So sad. 

But the age and detail that exists behind those walls are incredible. And the Crown Jewels. 
Wow. Wow. 




Evening Life.
We successfully navigated the DLR and made our way to Canary Warf to met Vikki and Matt to watch a movie on a big screen. Grease. It was pretty cool, so many people, lots of business people and some singing. It did rain, but no one was complaining. 

PS It really isn't a great movie. But the songs are great. And a crown singing them together is really fun.

    1. Hi Mikael,

      The double decker buses are pretty great. We thought it was pretty fun to sit up top and look at everything.

      I hope you are having a good week.

    1. Kia ora Jedi,

      We are having a blast in London. It is one incredible city. Sadly Big Ben is all wrapped up getting some repairs done so we haven't been able to see it. Luckily there are lots of big old buildings though. Everything seems so old or shiny here. It's pretty amazing.

      Thank you for your comment,

      We are having a great time. I'm sad to hear you miss me. Wouldn't it have been great if I could have brought you all for a class trip.

      How was your training with Zach on Wednesday? I hope your game goes really well (though it probably has already been when you read this).

    1. Hi Bree,

      We are having lots of fun. I bet the classroom is quiet. She sang all day yesterday because we were going to see the musical Wicked, which she loves. I hope that someone else can fill her shoes for a bit.

      How are those kitty cats of yours?

    1. Hi Teegan,

      I am having so much fun. I'm sorry I couldn't take you with us. That would have been one epic class trip eh? I think you would enjoy reading all about the history and seeing all the incredibly old things. Yesterday we were walking along a lane and there was the ruins of an old castle. How cool is that?

      How is your lego building? Have you a new project under way?
