We parked the car, grabbed our bags for London and took the train to our hotel. We stayed at the Danubius Hotel Regent Park and were glad to be a bit outside of the hustle and bustle of the city tourist attractions since we were in the middle of the summer school holiday. It did not take us long to get anywhere we needed by the tube and our feet are quite capable of walking as we so often do on holiday. The hotel was lovely and even had a door man dressed in tophat and tails. I am ashamed that I did not get a picture of him!

After our time at Madame Tussauds, we walked about the city to Trafalgar Square where they have the official clock counting down the time to the 2012 Olympics. We are so excited to have tickets and there is a chance I could even see the American Womens soccer team play!

And seemed quiet and safe compared to the news reports the week prior regarding the riots. There was plenty of police presence all around the city as well.
