Visit to London
Wednesday, June 07, 2000; posted by Paris

Lisa and I had the opportunity to spend 4 days in London, England. We saw all of the sites and many are included in the following pages. The weather was mild (low 60's to low-70's) and generally sunny. No rain!

This is for Jim.

Lisa and Gerben (one of my CL co-workers) at a late-night bar (may have been called the "O" bar) in Soho. Most bars close at 11, but these have special licenses to stay open later.

Lisa and Gerben in the back of a black cab.

A look at the grey London skyline and the Thames. You can see the Eye of London and Big Ben and the Houses of Parliament in the distance.

Painted on just about every street corner to help keep the tourist industry alive. And, trust me, it does.

This is a street (Gloucester Mews) which is made up of houses that were formerly stables and carriage houses - hence the name mews.

Alan (also a CL co-worker) and me sitting opposite Lisa and Gerben in the black cab. Lots of jokes and fun during our ride to Soho.

A protest over the U571 film. The history was re-defined by Hollywood, ignoring the real accomplishment of the British.
