Back in London

I didn't get anything out of the airline yet for my flight getting canceled.  I was in the bulkhead and both of the people next to me were upgraded during the flight!  But not me, sad.  

I take a cab on with my luggage and go through central London, we went past the Palace and Westminster Abby, it's a mess already and the wedding is a week away!  Streets are already closed, there were wall to wall people at both the palace and the Abby.  The gates around the Abby were closed and it doesn't seem you can get in, sucks if you are a tourist!  

The crowd control gates are on the sidewalks already and of you are on the streets the day of the wedding I really don't see how you will see anything.  They are set so far back from the Abby.  

It was very interesting though.  

FI and I are going into Central London tomorrow so I will be on foot and see more.  It's a four day weekend this weekend and next weekend, for Easter, then the Wedding and May bank holiday.  

Also the weather was beautiful the whole time I was gone and I had that crap weather in Philadelphia!  Basically I missed summer, knowing England.

    Glad you finally got back safe and sound!  I have to admit, I wasn't all about the royal wedding, but now that it's getting closer, I'm getting more and more interested about it.

    Welcome back NCV. The weather has been gorgeous so yep, you missed summer. LOL! No, it's supposed to still be nice for the next few days.
    We drove today to TM Lewin because we needed to return some shirts. BIG mistake!
    Welcome back!

    It was really great to meet you! Glad to hear you got home safe, although that stinks about the airline not giving you anything for getting canceled. Hopefully they will get their act together.

    If you have time to spare in June, I would love to get together when we're there! Good luck with your last month of planning, and if you need any help when you get back, I'd be more than happy to help! (I'm living vicariously through other people's weddings to tide me over, heh) Smile
