Another busy day spent doing a lot of hopping. We hopped on and hopped off the Big Bus more times than we can count. We shopped on Oxford Street. We did a river cruise on the Thames and we went to see the Phantom of the Opera.
We really enjoyed the Big Bus Tour with the live commentator
We also did the free river cruise of the Thames and enjoyed it as well. When all that touring was done, we had to make our way back to Piccadilly Circus in time for The Phantom of the Opera.
Last night we got sidetracked at the pub we went to and received our dinner at 7:25 when the Book of Mormon was starting at 7:30. Needless to say, we barely tasted our food, what we did get shovelled into our mouths. It was sad, really, cause the food looked sooooo good. We made it to the show about 5 minutes late. Tonight we made it on time, but in order to do that, we had to sacrifice our dinner entirely. We've got to work on that timing!
Now the Phantom....all I can say is that the sets, costumes and technology was just amazing. It was truly incredible to watch all these different sets come to life. It really put the stage details at last nights the Book of Mormon to shame as it was so basic. And Sue, we missed you!
After the show we forced our way through the crowded Saturday night tube system to come home for a little snack before bed.
Tomorrow is surprise x 2 day. You'll see soon enough!!
Timing is everything...or nothing at all!
