My parents have arranged for a car to take us around the city to help us get our bearings. It will pick us up at 10am and drop us off at 2pm. We weren't sure what we wanted to do with it so we'll probably leave it to the driver to find some fun places to take us. However, we do know where we want it to drop us off.
Oxford Circus is at the northwest corner of Soho and Rob really wants to explore Soho. Yes, dear readers, believe it or not, we actually plan on doing some shopping on our first full day in London. *sigh*
Our walk through Soho will carry us (intentionally) through Chinatown. It will be fun to compare London's Chinatown with New York's Chinatown.
We'll pass through Piccadilly Circus on our way back to the hotel. We won't even have to go out of our way. How cool is that?
We could have already walked through and around St. James's Park but, even if we have, we will have an opportunity to do so again on this day. My fingers are crossed that we will have found a perfect something for Rob by the end of this day because he is very fussy about finding The Perfect Something and if we don't find The Perfect Something for him . . . well, I'll let you know later in our Tentative Itinerary.
There's quite a list of people for whom we'll want to find gifts. But we've so many wonderful places to visit, I can't imagine we'll buy everything on our first day. Or maybe I just hope not, even as I desperately hope Rob finds his Perfect Something.
