It’s Raining – We Must Be in England

Done with our work in Germany, we decided to spend a couple of days in England on the way back. I had this vague plan to check out some family historical roots that my brother turned up, but they turned out to be in Cornwall – pretty far away from London. My good friend, co-worker, and boss (in that order) had decided he wanted to hang with me, so burning up all the time we had to drive out to Cornwall to look at some old buildings (of which we had seen plenty in the last two weeks), seemed kind of lame. We decided to stick to London for our introduction to England, and were well rewarded. Maybe next time.

We bought day passes on the tube, walked around a lot, decided not to pay outrageous prices to go into the Tower of London or Westminster Abbey, and stopped frequently in pubs. We just happened to be in town for the Dolphins-Giants game at Wembley, so when we decided to hit a sports bar hoping to catch the Chargers game, we ran into a bevy of British NFL fans. We got along well, but some well-meaning guys set us on the elusive hunt for the Essex girls.
