London by foot

Well the Birthday bash was cool, we started in a pub across from us and was shortly joined by an elderly gentleman. As we sat there minding our business the gent started to twitch!
Weird huh! Well it got weirder - he then seemingly developed TORRETS!
He sat there trying to snap his fingers to the music well out of sync, we sat there trying not to draw attention to it, but boy did he manage the job by himself, by growling at us or walking around as batman!?

We were later joined by several of Carries friends and then moved onto the Thai restaurant, which was nice that is until Carrie nearly burnt the place down with her napkin!!!! :S

Anyway the following day we visited the Tate Modern Art Gallery - and was very unhappy that we couldnt go down the slide (they were way cool too 5 stories high), well we could but it meant queing for silly time, the gallery was full of wonderful and not so wonderful art pieces.

Really China you could make a fortune doing art now because some were nothing short of madness - either splats or just simply canvas in one colour!?! thats art?? really??

But some was wicked. This is a pic we managed to take and then got told off - we then had to escape being chased by several guards and a lion! no I lied sorry, there was no lion it was a tiger!!! oops I did it again (ala britney).


Anyway I couldn't help but smile when I saw this. See how long you can look at it without the need to smile.

We then walked (for miles, no kidding) around London, visiting Tower Bridge, London Bridge the Millenium Bridge, Westminister Bridge, Waterloo Bridge, Blackfriars Bridge - it would appear we are bridge spotters!!! eeekkk!! lol!
Anyway we found lots of chewing gum splats! (private joke), we walked along the Queens walk and didn't see her, so went to visit Buckingham Palace, Big Ben, Houses of Parliment,
Westminster Abbey & the London Eye (which was nice ;) )

Then went shopping around Covent Gardens - watched a Magician and a Juggler. Visited China Town again, which at this point we were starved and feeling tired this didnt help. We resisted the food - which was REALLY hard! :(
We arrived home tired and hungry - but was well worth the effort!!
