A Weekend in London

We spent this past weekend in London. It was so much fun to see the city at Christmastime! We stayed at the RAF (Royal Air Force) Club which is a very nice hotel right on the edge of Hyde Park - just a stone's throw from Buckingham Palace! We are very lucky that as foreign exchange students we get to be members of the RAF club and get to take advantage of these wonderful opportunities. Here is the view from our room:
We walked down to Piccadilly Circus and had lunch at a tiny pub. Here is a sculpture on the way:
Piccadilly Circus - they put Eros in a snow globe!!
We went into Hamley's which is like FAO Schwartz of London. It was INSANE and I only lasted about 5 minutes before the crowd and the heat got to me. I walked up Regent Street while Brendan stayed in the store with Aidan and Emmy.

i love hamley's!! it's always nuts at this time of year, but if you catch it when it's slower, that place is magical.
