After an excruciatingly long trip on Cathay Pacific airlines (their seats are obviously made for Asian sized people not fat Americans) we made it to London. We thought that Japan would be the most expensive place we would encounter on our trip. We were wrong, the pound is so strong right now (about double the Amercian dollar) that we went way over budget during this leg of the trip. We stayed in England for quite a while though because Joy wanted to see a ceramic show that was to feature one of the artists that inspire her, Kate Malone. Anyway, here I am in front of Buckingham Palace.
