First two days in England was pretty relaxed meeting the parents of Claire.  They are pretty laid back and hospitable.  They live in a London suburb called Mottingham.   There is not much here in Mottingham, but we did our Christmas shopping in a nearby town called Bromley.  I was pretty impressed with the shops here.  I liked that it had both open and closed shops.  There was an outside strip of shops and also an indoor mall.  I shared a drink with the family in the local pub.  There are two things that you are guaranteed to find everywhere in England and that is a pub and cathedral.  
The day after Christmas, we took a trip passing through Blackheath.  Blackheath is famous for a place where people were buried during the plague.  It is just an open field now, but it is a bit freaky knowing that bodies are underneath your feet.  The town of Blackheath has a typical English feel with some old decent houses.
