Snapshots of London

We had a great five days in London over the Thanksgiving long weekend. It was a flying visit but we still managed to pack in a lot of sightseeing and partying with friends. The weather was unseasonably warm in London for this time of year (much like New York has been), so we got to get out and explore without freezing our backsides off.

The architecture, the traditions and the history of this city is simply awe-inspiring. We saw so much and yet didn't get around to so much too. I guess it gives us the perfect excuse to get back again. Here are some pictures of what we saw while in London...

Various monuments at Trafalgar Square

Buckingham Palace

St. James Park, stunning autumn colours

Westminster Abbey

Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament (as viewed from the London Eye)

London Eye

The top of St. Paul's Cathedral

Tower Bridge and the Tower of London

A special thank you also to our fabulous hosts, Tim and Sarah, who not only put us up but who also gave us a fantastic tour of the city. We can't wait to return the favour in New York!
