London Agenda

 This was a trip we made with my mother and father, son and daughter-in-law, and sister and brother in law. This is the closest I have come to being a tour guide. The agreement was if any one did not want to follow the attached agenda Emily and I had they could go there own way.

The National Hotel was ok … it was more like a American hotel, and large.
