20060801 First day in town

So the big question is always – what do you do on your first day in London? After a morning of work, checking mail and few phone calls we headed into town – walking of course.

It’s not that far from my place to Big Ben, Westminster so headed up that way for a couple of photo op’s before heading up Horseguards Parade and over the Palace. We just missed the changing of the guard but thats ok, too many people hanging around hoping to see something. Headed back to Trafalgar Sq, where Nelson and his lions have just been freshly cleaned – more photo op’s.

After more ramblings around Leicester Sq and SOHO we ended up at Mildreds for lunch – great veggie place next to Carnaby St. Yum! Then over to Covent Garden before heading back home, footsore and exhausted.

With more veggie delights this evening at a gastropub in Angel, I’m now stuffed silly and ready for bed.

What to do tomorrow!! ??
