We got up early and started figuring out what we want to do while we’re in London. I think we’re going to the National Gallery today and to Bath on Friday (a day trip!). Breakfast was okay – they had hard-boiled eggs, some cheese, croisants and cerials. We managed to get cleaned up and going.

We took a cab to the National Gallery. They have an amazing collection.

We then walked over to St. Martin in the Field. This church as a neat shopping and restaurant area in the crypt.

We strolled off to do some shopping along Regents Street. On the way we saw the Crimean War Memorial.

We finally went along and did some shopping – I got a pair of sandals from Clarks and Aviva bought a few gifts from Past Times.

We walked over to Chinatown and ate dinner at Fung Shing, a very good restaurant on Lisle.

We walked a bit more, shopping in some of the book stores along Charing Cross, and then cabbed back to the hotel.
