The express train at Heathrow.
- so far, in said rental car, S has only tried to go back to the right side of the road once. Good for him. Left side driving is going OK.
S checking out Oxford.
This one looks very "Oxford", no?
- after picking up the car, we took our jet-lagged selves up the road toward Birmingham, the first stop on my business tour of hotels and venues (if you don't count the airport). On the way, we stopped in Oxford for lunch. Above are two examples of some photos from Oxford. There are many more, but we're on limited computer time here, folks, so more later. Like when we're back on the other side of the pond!
- made it (barely) to Birmingham, got lost, had to call the hotel concierge to drive us in, visited two hotels and a concert hall and THANK GOD went to sleep at around 7pm UK time. We were pooped.
- headed to Leeds on Sunday for a concert hall visit, and then a LONG drive back to near London for two more hotel visits.
Today, Monday, (I have to remind myself what day it is) a concert hall visit then we have about four free hours in London before flying to Amsterdam. We'll be enjoying those hours when you read this! S has never been to London, so we're going to hop a cab and do a whirlwind drive-by. I'll take photos. I'll post them here one day.
Hope to post more later in the week for you, depending on Internet access! Thanks for stopping by!
