Back in London

Monday, June 9

We arrived in London this morning. We are here on assignment for Brethren in Christ World Missions, to meet with our personnel and the two groups that cooperate with us in ministry here.

On the plane ride here, for recreational reading I started Ivanhoe by Sir Walter Scott – a novel of chivalry, prejudice, conflict between ethnic groups, history and romance. Robin Hood is one of the characters. Have any of my blog readers ever read this novel? If so what are your comments?

As we did last year, we are staying at Sir Alfred Hitchcock Hotel in the Leytonstone section of London, that is, in the northeast.

??????????

The room is small and on the third floor, but we have a small table and wicker bench, which is more that some small rooms have.

After naps to adjust for jet lag we walked for about 15 minutes to the High Road (main street) and had dinner at a typical restaurant (pub) called The Walnut Tree.

Across the street is a large McDonald’s, but we chose British over American!
