Westminster Abbey

27 March, 2006

We had more things to see before attending a performance
of Les Miserables in the evening. This included visiting the
flagship Virgin Records store, and an authentic British climbing shop,
(Those last two were my little idea!). We had to take the Tube to Piccadilly Circus,
and I believe at one tube station we could actually see it, only blocks away.

"Oy," I said to the ladies. "Is that it over there? We can just walk there, eh?"

"We are taking the Tube," they replied. Well, alrighty then.

It's tough to hoof it in pointy high-heel shoes I guess. Not fashionable either.
Mind the gap, he says. Never did get tired of hearing that.
