Jayne Azzopardi.......tour guide extrordinaire!!!
Jayne met us outside "The Salmon & Ball" - her local pub (which she has never been to)  at the end of an instructed trip to Bethnal Green on the tube. (Great instructions Jayne. . ) After much snickering at the English station names and recorded voices of "Mind the Gap!" we arrived and settled in to her very spacious and well-appointed house.
So off on the walking tour of all the usuals - Buckingham Palace, St Pauls Cathedral,, Trafalgar Square, The Green Park and a meal at Chinatown.
Our English/Peruvian?Indian friends (work that out!) Maddy & Ahayla met us in the city to catch up on old times (from a few weeks ago!)
Next off to the West End to see "Buddy" which was fun.
Tour day 2 -  The London Eye, Tower Bridge, Southbank & the Thames.  Picnic lunch in St James Park, watching the squirrels darting around.  Next to Harrods to look, don't touch or BUY!
A beer in a cute pub (they ALL are!)  And lots of red bus trips using the Oyster Card.
Home then out again to Brick Lane for a tasty Indian meal - yum!  The touts trying to drag us in to all the restaurants were half the entertainment.  Jayne bargained though, for free pappadums and we were theirs!
Thanks Jayne, we'll see you again soon for another  night  . .sorry bout that!  And thanks so much again.
