We love London!  It has an energy we both appreciate and it is so easy to get around!  We started the day by heading down to Leicester Square to buy tickets for the theater.  We will be seeing “39 Steps” based on an Alfred Hitchcock film that has 4 actors play 130 characters.  It is obviously a comedy and has some very good reviews.  
We walked down to the banks of the Thames River to walk along its banks and enjoy some of the street performers.  It was VERY crowded since it was a Saturday, so we only stayed for a little while.  Still, the views from the bridge were amazing and we really enjoyed wandering around.
Of course by then we were pretty hungry so we hopped back on to the “tube” and went to an amazing Spanish tapas bar called La Tasca (we had eaten here on a previous trip, so we knew where to go).  Great food (and several excellent mojitos) rounded out our afternoon.  We are now putting up our feet (and drinking some alcoholic ginger beer) so we can enjoy a walk about town, a nice pub meal and the play tonight. 
Tomorrow our journey finishes.  We head back to Canada and our own bed.
