London: Quicky Tourism

The Embassy of the United States of America : London, UK

Today, I made my first ever trip to London, England! Given our reception at passport control, though, it may well be my last. Those agents are harsh, let me tell ya! They aren't impressed when, in response to the question, "why are you here?", you say, "To see your lovely city." If you're our friend Scott, you took it one step further and incurred their ire. "Why are you here?" he was asked. "To see London," he said. "What will you be seeing?" Says Scott, "I don't know. What would you recommend?" LOL!

Anyway--the next few days will feature pictures from storied London. We spent three of our four days there shopping (and love, love, loving it!) and only one day touristing. These are really basic tourist shots. We'll be going back, though, I'm sure, because there's just so much to see and do!

So sorry that we missed you! We were there Sunday through Friday last week. Hope we can see you in Tübingen!

Wait! You were where? London or Geneva? Did we miss you in Geneva? And yes, we need to find a long weekend and come to Tubingen.
