getting to london today was a pain in the butt. our driver said it was the worst traffic he’d seen. so we got to our hotel just in time to change and grab a cab to the theater for the lion king (the pic is us during intermission). then we stopped at a little italian place for a late dinner, walked through covent garden (probably my favorite place in london — certainly one of my favorites), and liesl had her first tube ride back to our hotel. tomorrow morning, portobello road market in notting hill.
