Whew! We're back in London after a whirlwind 2-week tour around Great Britain.
Now I can relax a bit, visit some museums, and see some more sights.
Fat chance. There's never enough time to do what you want to do. I took a

collection. I now have a grand total of two: one from Atlanta and one from London.
It's pathetic that I haven't even been to the one in D.C. (I guess that's just too
Also, I had to get ready for the show I wanted to see...
Yep, they had the "Beauty and the Beast" musical playing at the local
theaters. What I really wanted to see was "Phantom of the Opera", but
unfortunately that had sold out by the time we got to London (the FIRST day).
However, I quite enjoyed the musical. It was definitely a bit more... ah ...

in the film.
The french maid was really cute!
The Dominon Theatre is along a whole row of theaters and playhouses (including one or
two that show a bit more than singers, if you know what I mean). The outside was
decorated in spectacular fashion for the current showing, including a huge poster of the
advertised play. On the way there I rode in the front of one of the large
double-decker buses that occupy London: that was a wild feeling!
Damnation: I gotta get up at 5:00am tomorrow to pack and get ready to leave!
