We're here!

Other than some turbulence flying in and out Denver and into Dulles, our trip was really smooth. No delays and on our longest flight, we had individual seat back monitors so were able to watch what we wanted, although that did mean that we got very little sleep.

Watched Quantum of Solace Denver to Dulles and The Family that Preys and Cadillac Records Dulles to Heathrow. Rachel was very excited to see that they were playing Twilight.

Immigration was a breeze contrary to what I recall from my last visit. The wait was just a few minutes and the agent didn't even mention the expiration date on Rachel's passport. Customs was a total non-event. There was one agent in the corner and he was totally engaged with a woman so I don't think he even saw us.

Took the Tube from Heathrow to South Kensington and the first thing we saw upon exiting the Underground early on a Saturday morning was a processing of horses clopping down the streets of Kensington. There were approximately a dozen riders, all wearing bright reflective vests and each leading a riderless horse. My camera was inconveniently located in my backpack or you'd be looking at a photo right now.

We were at Brian and Miriam's by 8:30 am and directly to sleep. It's a beautiful day that we mostly slept through but whatever.

We're on vacation.
