After breakfast yesterday, we caught an Oxford Express Coach into London, and caught up with my parents around 11:20 am. We had lunch at Victoria Station, then headed for the British Museum. We took the Underground, and when emerging, we asked out loud, "Now to the British Museum!" And the man emerging next to us simply said, "Up to the corner, turn right and keep going to the Museum," then walked on. Ubiquitous information source!

After the museum, we walked down to Oxford Circus and then over to an area of town with inexpensive Indian food. We stopped by Hard Rock Cafe-London to get a shirt for my brother (he collects them), then walked across Hyde Park to Marble Arch where the folks took the Underground back to their hotel and we caught the London Express back. We didn't get in until around 11:30 pm – late night.
