Christmas in London 2008
London
Finding London such a great holiday experience last year, we returned for a few days of pre-Christmas cheer. The weather was crisp, but no rain for the five days we were there! Though we find cemeteries on most trips, the closest we got was the sarcophagi tops in the "V&A" (Victoria and Albert Museum) (below middle and right). Also, we found even more taxis as moving billboards than in 2007.

(above) After touring the Tate Britain Museum, we ate at the acclaimed Rex Whistler restaurant in the museum. Although a large Christmas party was seated next to us (middle, without people!), we had a great lunch before setting out for a production of Les Miserables.
(above) We returned to London because we love the spirit of Christmas throughout the city.
