We made it to London safe and sound! Charlotte did a great job on the flight and we were all able to get a little sleep (although they had such a great selection of "on demand" movies to watch, it was tempting to just stay awake!) We got to our flat and all napped for an hour or two before heading out on the town. We didn't get as many errands done as we had hoped, but we did pick up some pots and pans and ordered our sofa-bed! We also got to know our neighborhood a little bit better. It is really a cute/fun area! We're looking forward to exploring a bit more. Now we are back in our flat and are going to pick up a pizza from down the street for dinner. Looks like a cute place.
One big lesson we learned today is that the tube isn't as convenient to take a baby on as is the DC metro. Many of the stations don't have elevators so we one of us would carry the stroller while the other carried Charlotte in her carrier. It was a hassle with two people but it would be too much to handle with just one. Next time we take the tube with Charlotte it will probably be in a baby carrier!
We won't get our internet hooked up until next week, but we've decided to pay to join a local network until we get our own service. We also don't have phones yet, but the plan is to get some iPhones within the next couple of days. In fact, we tried to get them tonight, but they were all out! Jason reserved some online tonight and we should get them tomorrow (along with an American number for all y'all to call us on!).
Time to go pick up our pizza! Here's the description. Sounds yummy: mushrooms, mozzarella, olives, olive oil, garlic and herbs with tomato sauce.
