I'm back with the boys (who started school this morning : phew!!!!) from our trip to London….
What to say ????
We were so happy to be there! We walked a lot, we visited a lot, we enjoyed the company of some old friends from Egypt and Indonesia and I had the opportunity to meet for the first time my bloggy friend Emma (and : her lovely little girl Betsy, her kind hubby Darren and the sweet Tilly, their big dog!) : everything was great over there!!!!!
We landed in London Heathrow Airport at 6am of Saturday, 27th of December '14 ….
We arrived at our hotel just around 8:15, but we had to wait the check in time (2pm!) to enter our room, so we left our luggages at the hotel reception and we stepped out in the cold windy morning… just imagine our reactions, coming from the usual 32-35˙C in Maputo and being tired because of an intercontinental flight of 11 hours ….. !!!!
We walked along Cromwell Road to warm up, we looked at the beautiful windows of Harrods, we had a hot cappuccino at Starbucks and around 10am we cued at the entrance of the Natural History Museum…. we had lunch there, too, and when it was time we went back to the hotel, where we got our room…. we unpacked our luggages, had hot showers, put pjs on, had dinner (bought from a nearby supermarket), watched some tv and slept until next morning …..
