Journal Entry:
As usual ended up rushing to pack and get to the airport. Unexciting flight to London.

Took the tube into London from Heathrow. Tried to get hold of Jeanne and Laura (friends I was counting on staying with), but no one answered the phone. Checked my pack at Victoria station so I could at least wander around unencumbered. Started a survey of Pubs (more specifically Ales) while I was waiting for them to get home. After I gave up on them on my way to pick up my pack and find someplace to stay I finally got hold of them.

We had a pretty good Thai dinner near their house and talked 'til late.
