We’ve had a lovely first day so far…the weather was about as good as it gets this time of year. We took advantage of the sunshine and buzzed around the city a bit, both on foot and by double-decker bus. (The seat covers were tartan, naturally!)We steered clear of most of the big tourist destinations since we’ve both been here before. But my rampant Anglophilia and love of history would not allow me to miss touring the Royal Yacht Britannia, which is moored here on permanent exhibit. VERY cool. The tour is self-guided and you can take as much time as you like, and as it wasn’t very crowded, it was easy to linger in all the places I’’ve seen photos of for so many years.
Tonight is the BIG show, French & Saunders: Still Alive. Dr. Darling wants to have Indian food for dinner beforehand…could be a dangerous combination!
More to report later, I’m sure. Anyone interested in the actual play-by-play should check out my Twitter feed: www.twitter.com/shazzer
