Trip to London

On March 31st we headed to London by train to spend 3 nights.  The main reason for visiting was to see the annual performance of  St Matthew Passion at Southbank Centre.

We were fortunate that the weather was mild and mostly sunny.

I didn't bring my camera so took 'snapshots' with my mobile phone camera.

I love the architecture of the old buildings!  Some interesting new buildings as well.




St Paul's Cathedral







Saturday there was a march of EDL (English Defence League - fascists) vs anti fascists.  Lots of police!








A movie was being filmed near Buckingham Palace

Catching up!

I see I haven't posted for over a month and here we are getting ready to go home in 10 days.  Time fies.

We've been enjoying bicycling, kayaking, snorkeling, swimming, eating, drinking, being warm, and the Thai people and culture.  I got a bit of sunburn while kayaking this week because I didn't have sunscreen under my tank top.  Danny banged his foot into a sea urchin while swimming but fortunately got all the spikes out and it was treated with vinegar and antiseptic.

Most recently we spent three nights at a luxury resort as my pre-birthday holiday within a holiday.  The island has a handful of residents, a small beach bar in a hut, and the resort we went to which has 37 villas.
