London Baby!


Magdalena is becoming a world traveler. First stop: UK! Since Momma had a connecting flight out of London back to Atlanta, we decided to go a day early so we could see the sights together. Here is a famous double decker bus -- way too cool!




Riding the double decker was a bit boring for Magdalena, so we hopped off and walked the rest of the way to Harrod's. The department store is on the right with all of the flags hanging from the building front. Notice: I'm pushing Magdalena in the "push chair" as the airline called the umbrella stroller we were borrowing from the Verbrugges. Thanks Ann-marie!




Here we are in Harrod's! That store is amazing! Everything is out the wazoo expensive, but super nice too. This is the escalator area by the Egyptian Salon. See, even the names of the sections in the store are hoity-toity!




Before going to the evensong service at Westminster Abbey (where the choir sounded wonderously angelic!), we drove around town with Joane and Johan, our South African friends that we met in Prague. Johan was on the Project Antioch CORE team with me. It was so nice to visit with them as they drove us by several London sites including Buckingham Palace, Trafalger Square, Houses of Parliament, and Westminster Abbey.
