London's Burning...



Adding to the many first time adventures of the Tsukamoto-girls, we had Amy helping my mother with her hair, but unfortunately they had a hard lesson to learn when it came to Voltage adapters.  They are apparently very important.  Case in point, when my sister picked up the curling iron, she said it was very hot. After she put it in my mothers hair, a small amount of curl from the back quickly singed off.   It was a traumatic experience, but a good laugh for us later in the day.  (and no one will even be able to tell where it burned from!)  
Anyways, back to the actual trip.  Today we took another bus tour around the city (they are the best way to get a real feel for the sights.  We started at Green Park (home to Buckingham Palace.) and weaved through the city to all the great sights like Westminster Abby, Big Ben, Parliment, and the Tower of London.  It is amazing to see the largest cut diamond in the world (which is 530 carats.) Beautiful, but oh so out of reach for commoners. Tommorrow we will head to the National Gallery.  Sorry this is a short post, but my internet I paid for will expire in about ten minutes. :)

Forgetting a voltage adaptor will get you every time! My mom forgot to use hers in Israel, turning her coffee into Mt. Vesuvius.
