Sleeping in late
Private Bus Tour (wasn't kidding about that)
Ok - now we're ready to wrap it all up.
Narrator: "The sudden realization that, yes, they did already pay for daily breakfast at the hotel gets Jon and Emily up and ready to go early the next day. But, not wanting to change their accustomed schedule TOO drastically, Emily decides to nap for a bit after they eat. She awakes to find Jon on the phone."
Jon (on the phone): "Uh-huh. Ok. Yep. Great. Bye." (hangs up) "Great news! David has taken some time off today, he'll meet us soon for a walking tour of London's hotspots!"
Emily: "Last one to the 'Tube' pays for dinner!"
Narrator: "So they dash off to the subway and meet up with David, in the POURING rain at Oxford Circle."
Narrator: "When evening comes the trio meets up with David's lovely wife Jodi. They take in the city lights for a bit, before dining on Dim Sum with friends."
Emily: "This was such a lovely day. Now we've seen the whole of London. The only thing left to do is meet with the Queen!"
I love you and am so proud of you.

Jon (checking clock): "Ummm...Emily? It's 11:30."
"...and took refuge in another coffee shop to thaw."
Jon: "And now, my dear, a special surprise."
The lights were blazing...
...the sights were amazing...
It was almost magical...in a cold, rainy sort of way.

This is what our hotel looked like when we arrived on the scene.
Part Two: Hyde Park, a Pub, some Coffee, and a Private Bus Tour of London.
