Planes, Trains and Automobiles

After a few very very short hours of sleep we woke up, and in under 15 minutes made our way down to the street and hopped in the cab. We caught the Mega Bus to Chicago then the train to O'Hare. Our flight on Air India was actually the best either of us have ever been on. We had individual TVs that we could watch any movies, play games, TV shows etc. We got 2 full meals and even blessed when we boarded.

It was only an 8 hour flight and we slept all but an hour of it. Getting into London was a bit harder. We were very tired and what should have been a 1/2 hour ride in the "underground" turned into 2 hours because we took one wrong tube.

The Dover Castle Hostel we are staying at was only 1 block off of where the tube dropped us off. So far so good, we got so rest then walked around a few hours.

We are sitting in a Pub a few blocks from the Hostel and Charlie is about to fall asleep so I think we better head back.

H & C

So far we LOVE London. 

Yes we already had fish and chips :)
