LONDON, LONDON, LONDON!

Here in England, Pakistan are involved in a ball tampering incident in a cricket test! They've taken their bats and they might well go home. Nasty scene. (Don't worry about it if you're from America!)

Arrived London and are staying in North London with Servas folks - Richard and Joanne. We expect to depart tomorrow for the south west of England and then head to Ireland.

Good to be here at long last. Transport here isn't cheap though. Looks like car rental is cheaper than US. But then that wouldn't be hard would it?

We seem to have recovered well from jet lag. Richard suggested getting the sun on your head. Did that briefly yesterday between rain showers, but today not much sun around. As Fay said, 'It is England!'

Must say the British were excellent on the flight from NY to London - British Airways. Female captain on the big 747 400. Six hour trip in total.

Sorry no photos as yet. We still look the same, in fact we're wearing the same clothes (as Claudine from Kansas City has noticed! She suggested we buy some new gear!) Then we wouldn't be able to be recognised.

Yes Al, BS will be coming to Ireland. Expect to arrive there about 2 or 3 Sept. We pick up a rental car (maybe Astra) tomorrow from Marble Arch (Not near Marble Bar!) Then head west to Cornwall. Recovering from jetlag quite well.

Glad to hear you arrived safely and are still enjoying your travels. All is well here, William & Elias won their rugby grandfinal last Saturday, we were leading at a camp at Ridgecrest last weekend, and we are just as busy as usual.
Work is going well and church is doing well. Maybe you could catch up with Katie Eagle and Kristen Morse they are in England now and will be working around London somewhere when their school goes back. I could send their contact details later if your interested.
Have fun and God Bless

Well, that's a relief I don't have to worry about the ball tampering! Glad you arrived safely.

Thanks Kathy... not here long enough to catch up with them. Off to Wales and Ireland. Congrats to RU boys! And to camp organisers!
Thanks Julie!
No, Jen, the ball tampering is beyond you!! Leave it to Pakis and Poms! (Issue far from resolved though. That's what u get from having an Aussie umpire!)
