If you can't have tea with the Queen,have beers with your friends!

Since the Summer Olympics are underway in London, I thought I should get my s*#@ together and finally complete this blog from my trip to London almost two years ago!
Upon arrival at Heathrow we made a team decision to skip taking the subway into the city because we wanted to ride in one of London's cute black cabs also known as a hackney carriage. Since Heathrow is so far from the center of London, it was not cheap. But we had fun just the same. They are very large and hold quite a lot of luggage. We had five people and bags, and the car had no problem hauling all of us to our hotel.

London is a beautiful, and expensive city. We were lucky enough to have great hotel hookups thanks to my friend Nicole. After getting squared away in our rooms, we headed out to explore the city. We have always been big fans of the subway systems in each of the cities we visit, so we picked up our three day passes for the Tube, as it's called in London, and headed out to get lost! First priority...find some food, preferable fish and chips! London is where I fell in love with vinegar on my chips (aka fries).
