Well the adventure has finally begun!
We left for England on Thurs, July 14th and arrived safely in London on Fri. morning dog tired from all our preparations and excitement. We arranged for a van to take us and all our luggage from the airport to our hotel. This carting our luggage for Tanzania around is becoming a real pain; however, we think we've got it sorted out so we don't have to cart our two heaviest bags to Paris.
When we arrived at the hotel we stored our luggage and went on a short walk-a-bout until we could check in, at which point we took a long nap. When we woke, we went out on a long walk-a-bout exploring and becoming acclimatized to the area. It is incredible how busy this place is and how many people there are here. The streets are packed with tourist. Today we have been taking it easy doing some grocery shopping and more exploring and of-course watching some of the British Open. No pictures to send yet, but will take some soon.
Blessings to you all.
