After 20 hours of travel door to door we have arrived in London and are esconced in The London Guest House. http://www.londonguesthouse.uk.com/ This is a budget priced B&B in Acton, a west end burough that used to be Irish and is now home to many immigrants. Our room is modest, but adequate and the price is very low for London.
We took a couple hour walk around the area when we arrived. That served to get us moving after so many hours sitting and it gave them time to clean our room since we arrived at 9 AM. They graciously allowed us to check in at 11. They also have said we can use the dining room to paint if we want to spend a day or two doing so. There are several Indian and other Asian restaurants nearby, one Irish pub, and a little cafe that we visited during our walk.
Now we are settling in and taking care of some business online. I also need to program the GPS with things we want to see. We couldn’t program it until we arrived because the European maps didn’t know what Seattle was. Tomorrow we will begin to see the sights.
