Arrived in London (saw sun set and sun rise on same flight)

We touched down at Gatwick around 8:30 this morning. Not a lot of sleep on the plane.

That fact that we took off around the time the sun set in Philadelphia, and were in the air when the sun rose in England suprised me. I guess the combination of being in the air for 6 hours and moving through 5 time zones means you can actually see the sun set and rise while on the same flight.

Spent the day walking down Charing Cross Rd, browsing through dozen's of small book and music shops. Found our way to Leicester and Trafalgar Squares and ended up at Picadelly Circus. Most of the travel was on foot except for a few rides on the tube and double-decker busses.
