London Journal – Thursday, May 14, 2009

Today is my mother’s 89th birthday, so I called her on my U.S. cell phone. What a privilege to have a clear connection five time zones away.

For the Pastors’ Vision Trip participants, this is a free day for them do do anything they want. Some took the bus tour around the city. Others walked for a couple of miles through the famous areas of the Houses of Parliament and London Bridge. Others went to see The Phantom of the Opera.

Since they were busy with their diversions, I worked on office work in the morning and evening. In the afternoon JoLene and I went for a late lunch to Covent Garden. This is a district famous for its shops, restaurants, street performers and theaters.

We went to the “market building.”

We ate lunch at the Punch and Judy pub. I had the roast beef dinner, with two Yorkshire puddings. I had mentioned this type of pudding in a blog long ago, but I don’t recall including a photo of one.

The puddings are the pastries on the right.

The delights of London are many and varied!

While we ate our dinner on the second floor, a performer on the street below had two bystanders tie him up in a strait jacket and chains and padlocks, and sure enough, he somehow wiggled his way free from everything!

My thought is: there’s got to be an easier way to earn a living.
