Visiting London

We visited a friend in London during the first week of November and were able to explore several parts of the city. One of highlights was a performance of Les Miserables at the Queen's Theater.
This is the front door to our friend's apartment building.

These are other homes in the neighborhood.

Here I am on the bus heading to the center of the city.

Parliament on the River Thames.

Everyone recognizes BIG BEN.

Trafalgar Square was much larger than I expected it to be.

Here are some people playing a game in Trafalgar Square that I remember for the era the Beatles we introduced to America on the Ed Sullivan Show.
Vincenzo enjoyed being a tourist on top
of the double decker sight-seeing bus, even in the rain.
I was hoping to feed the birds on the steps of St. Paul's, but alas, it is forbidden! (They could do it when Mary Poppins was in town!)
The Baker Street Underground Station
is a must for fans of Sherlock Holmes.
