Sunday, June 22, 2008 (written on the flight between London and Kenya)
Despite the fact that most of us did not sleep on the plane, we made it through a great afternoon in London, England. We saw many of the touristy sights - the castle, Big Ben, Trafalger Square, Westminster Abby, and Saint Paul's Cathedral (where Prince Charles married the 19 year-old Diana Spencer). We hopped on and off a BMW shuttle bus, stopping for 15-20 minutes at a time in each must-see location. London is beautiful and the people are genuinely kind. That was my experience when I was in London 16 years ago, and it seems true still.
We're all pretty tired already and we haven't even arrived in Africa. In fact we are only 1/2 way there!
The kids are great! I'm looking forward to getting to know each of the better...think I'll nap now.
