Arrived at Heathrow Airport @ 2.30pm, glorious pouring rain for our arrival.

Rain eased off slightly as we got off onto a shuttle bus to Terminal 5.  We were on the last bus and ragging the chain a bit so by the time we passed through immigration, no line, and picked up our bags, the customs officials had clocked off and we walked through without so much as a hello.

On to the Express train to Paddington, 20 mins, great way to get right into the city.  We decide to get a cab rather than another train and somehow we managed to fit all 5 of us plus all our gear into a London Cab. 5 big bags plus backpacks, Brilliant.

Arrive at our B&B in Pimlico, great spot.  Rooms could be a bit bigger, but we have just come from Vegas were everything is huge.  Nanna in with  girls in a triple room and Amanda and I in a double next door but 1.  Find the Laundromat around the corner and get some essentials done.

After a freshening shower, we head our for a quick recky.  Everything you need in the way of shops and transport within a few blocks.  4 Restaurants on two pubs in the street around the corner. We settle on O Sole Mio right next door and had a great meal, all polished off including deserts all round.

Off to sleep to knock off the jetlag.
