Our first full day in London…. our rest day to get over jet lag…. was actually quite active. We didn’t get an early start, but we made a full day of it starting with train rides to town where we had to improvise due to closures for maintenance. There are lots of workers along the system; wearing bright vests; who are there to help lost tourists so we did fine.
Lots of people all around our destination even though it was Friday so, presumably, a work day.

Stan, again, with the Tower of London across the river.
Stan considering having fish and chips at ‘The Horniman’…. hmmmm…. hand battered… hmmmmm.
There is quite a contrast between the new (and many oddly shaped) buildings and the buildings from times of old. The bow of the boat in the river is the HMS Belfast that is open for tours.
