DAY 5: Train Riding & Shopping

London Underground
District Line train

Cynthia and the kids were pretty tired, so Mark took advantage and spent the morning  riding and photographing the various forms of rail transit around London. A detail report to which is featured on the Kavanagh Transit Website.

Mark met the family at McDonald's at Earl's Court for lunch. From there we were off to Convent Gardens. Emily wanted to stop at an Herbalist there in the Piazza. We watched street performers for a while, then off to Virgin Megastore by Oxford Circus, along with a few bookstores. A ride on a Routemaster bus helped out on this part of the trip. Cynthia's foot was starting to swell badly, so we took her back to the hotel. Emily and I went out to ride the oldest part of the underground. She had been upset because Virgin did not have what she wanted. I took her over to Tower Records at Piccadilly Circus. They did have what she wanted, so life was better.

We went back to the hotel. Dinner was at a nice Chinese Restaurant on Earl's Court Road. After dinner we rode the tube to Westminster to view Big Ben and the Parliament Building at night. It was a really nice night for a walk across the Thames. Then it was back to the hotel to pack up to go home.
