Day 2 - London

Just a quick note on our travel diary... I'll (Jorge) will give the quick and dirty recaps of the day with some pictures. Patience will definitely come behind with the pretty... All the nice words and pictures I can't write or take. On to day two...

 

Whoa, day 2 was a full day for everyone! We started slow this morning, making sure everyone had the sleep they needed. The girls were up before the boys, and they made their way to a bakery and came back with some amazing breads and croissants. After a delicious breakfast (and strong espresso) we made our way over to Broadway Market. The market was amazing... The smells and sounds were incredible... The food and desserts were so good!! This was definitely a great find! Staying in Hackney has been so great, very diverse. At the grocery store I heard Spanish, French and of course English. I also had a nice man wave me to the front of the line since I only had two items. The four or five other people in line didn't seem to mind... Caught me off guard, but I couldn't imagine that happening back home.

We had a great time at the market, then made our way downtown to catch a couple of shows. The girls went to Wicked, while the boys did Stomp. Afterwards, a quick sushi stop and then made our way to the London Eye. (Insane views!!) Finished the night with some souvenir shopping, a quick late night snack and back on the tube home. Everyone was a trooper today!!

Notes from today: 

The kiddos have gotten really comfortable in the tube. They usually go ahead of us and wait at the platforms. 

Diet coke tastes so much better here. 

The Brits have been very friendly. I've fallen in love with their accent.

Netflix in the UK is a tiny little different. Our login works here though.
