Europe 2013 Trip Report: Part 4 – Finally some rain in London

Part 3 can be found here.

 

The plan was to take a break before heading back out to Piccadilly Circus.  Cuz is a big Lady Gaga fan and she had just released an album which he had, but there was also an international version with some extras he wanted to get.  Being a Sunday, the stores were closing early so we cut our break short to head to the HMV inside of Selfridge’s before they closed.  We made it with like five minutes to spare and me and Cuz practically ran to HMV.  They ended up not having the CD he wanted and we looked around as we slowly made our exit.

DSC08671 – these suitcases were really popular amongst our group and there were some regrets to not making the purchase
Selfridge's

 

We hopped back on the bus for the short trip to Piccadilly Circus.  Piccadilly Circus is a bit like New York’s Times Square.  There are lots of shops, it’s a busy intersection, and has some big electronic billboards.  We people watched for a minute before heading into a very British souvenir store.  Everybody pretty much went their own way and we came out with a lot of goodies.

When we came out it started to rain lightly.  I had brought a couple packs of rain-sleeves for my camera and distributed them out so everyone could keep their cameras dry.

Being Sunday pretty much everything was closed, so we headed back to the rooms to start packing since we would be leaving London tomorrow.  We ended up eating in the hotel’s bar and it was pretty good.

DSC08737 – someone ordered a bread basket
DSC08738 – roasted potatoes are always good

 

Our time in London was coming to a close, our plans for the next day involved the word Abbey, before catching the train to Paris.
