Serious jet lag haze obscured our entire first day in London. We basically walked around a lot, trying not to fall asleep anytime we sat down. I also spent some time walking around with tears streaming down my face, because the day would not have been complete without a fatigue and low blood sugar induced breakdown.
Fortunately, even in our haze, we avoided being hit by one of those crazy drivers driving on the wrong side of the road, and our remaining two-and-a-half days in London were enjoyable. We spent a fabulous (though foot killing) day at the Kew Botanic Gardens, visited a number of parks, and found some decent food.
I particularly enjoyed the preferred mode of transportation for the 3-8 year-old crowd – the scooter. Perfect for helping little legs keep up with big legs in a pedestrian environment.
