Journey Day: 1
18 - July 13 - London, England
Noon flight from Frankfurt back to London Heathrow - straight Underground
route to Marble Hall stop and hotel. Time for a London
scenic blitz and the Diana Princess of Wales Walk in Hyde Park.
Hyde Park was in full bloom - people and flowers. Scenes included
the new London Bombing Victim Memorial - 53 pillars denoting
each victim and their transport station. Another Memorial was the
Princess Diana Fountain. It could have been easily overlooked
since it's not a flamboyant vertical fountain. Instead, it's low to
the ground for sitting, resting, and dandling feet in the fountain
stream. Other sites included the formal statues of Queen Victoria,
Queen Elizabeth, Prince Albert, and King Edward.
Evening stroll was Buckingham Palace and Harrods. The famous
department store had parked in the rear street an endless array of
foreign money purchased cars including chrome plated Lamborghini, gold
plated Bugatti, and black with bright orange insert Bentley.
Makes the other Ferraris and Porsches look like rental
Time to end the day and vacation - tomorrow is the direct flight from
London Gatwick to O-town with thoughts of the Cretan
