Note from England

Just a quick note from the area of London, England. We had a poor introduction to London's airport. The passport control line took over two hours to get through and by the time we did get through the baggage information was gone and we had to search and search to find our baggage. Our friend who had come to pick us up at the airport had given up, thinking we had missed the plane or he had the wrong day and gone home and we had to phone and get him to come again. It was another 45 minutes or so. So from landing at 9:45 to the point where we got in the car to drive away from the airport was 3 1/2 hours. Exhaustion!

We are off to the city of London to visit the Tate Modern art gallery today via train and tube (subway).

Airports can be exhausting but I hope the rest of the trip is wonderful.

Oh dear. It's all the security precautions, I guess. I hope you enjoy the rest of your visit.
