Another full day of adventure happened in London today, most places don't open until 10:00 PM so there really isn't any rush in getting started too early in the AM. We headed for the Victoria & Albert Museum and arrived early so we went for a stroll over to Royal Albert Hall and the memorial to Albert which is quite something to see! We saw some very interesting victorian era architecture on our way back to the museum. In total we spent about 3 hours there and that hardly scratches the surface. Very interesting and worth going back to. Did I mention most museums and other public places are free. By now it's lunch time and since we hadn't been to Harrod's yet it was time to have a look. We had lunch in a wine bar and dessert at a malt shop and I am not going to tell you how much each of the meals cost, except it was cheaper at the wine bar and that included a bottle of wine!
Now it was time to venture around the City of London and more specifically, The Temple District, where there is a Knight's Templar Church from the Davinci Code movie that is from the 13th Century, but closed early today (rats!!) Going back tomorrow and since St.Paul's is in the same area we ventured off to that church only to find out that the last viewing is a 4:00 PM and their charging 12.50 and we didn't go there either. By this time the trail dust was getting heavy so after stopping a Bobbie he mentioned we have to go to the Old Cheshire Cheese pub, well what a neat place that is, as the sign says "Rebuilt in 1667" but has been there since 1538. That was enough lubricant to get back home so we could go for Indian food and that was another great experiance that is too detailed to describe. Enough for today as it's now 10:00 and it's time for bed.
