Unlike most of our flights in the past we had a long layover this time in London. Twenty two hours to be exact. After learning that we would be there that long we got to thinking about all of the things that we could do. Then the riots happened and we thought that it would be wise, as well as most of our family, that we just stick close to the airport. We were booked into the Harmondsworth Hall by a friend who lives in London. What a great experience that was in itself. The place was built in the 1600’s and is now an inn for people to stay at. It was so good to get out of the airport and have a bed to sleep in between the two eight hour flights.
We took the opportunity to go for out for dinner and do a photo safari. We had heard there was a McDonalds nearby but in asking directions we got directed to the one that was the furthest away from where we were. When we came back we saw that if we had just turned the other direction at one point we would have been at one that was much closer. It was fun to see some new things though and we got to ride on a few buses in our travels.
