Next stop was St Paul’s Cathedral. It was beautiful!!!! We were not allowed to take pictures inside. But believe me when I tell you it was AWESOME!!!! We climbed to the stone gallery where you can go outside and get a 360 degree view of London. It reminded me of the view from the Empire State Building.
We didn’t go inside the Abbey but the outside was again beautiful too.
Harrod’s started as grocery store know for its service and quality goods. It burnt to the ground in early December of 1883 and still managed to get all of its Christmas orders delivered on time. Its reputation has continued since then. They rebuilt the store and now it is five stories and carries everything you could possibly think of. Sporting goods, clothes, shoes, electronics, food, you name it they sell it. I felt compelled to buy something so Nick and I bought some cupcakes. They really were yummy!!!
At this point Nick and I are almost experts in the underground system, which is London’s version of New York’s subway. Nick’s new favorite saying is “Mind the Gap”. Which is said every time the doors close or open on the underground. Silly Nick.
