Hello to everyone back home! We all made the journey to London and while most of us did not catch much sleep on the overnight flight, we arrived ahead of schedule! We went through customs, got our bags, waited for the dot2dot bus (with the grumpy desk clerk!) and headed to our hotel.
We drove into the Kensington section of London and arrived at the Kensington Close Hotel - which is in a terrific location and seems to be top notch so far. We left our bags with the porters and joined our local tour director, Chris, for coffee and tea at an overview meeting. Chris highlighted a very busy first day for us and then we headed out on foot to the local Tube station.
