July 30 2011 - London - ferry to Kew and Hammersmith pub


sunny 25 °C

A late start. After a long breakfast, we took a short tube-ride to Leicester Square to try and get mantinee tickets from the official ticket booth for one of the few plays in London. All sold out

So then we had the brilliant idea of walking down Whitehall to the Westminster Embankment to get a ferry-trip up the Thames to Kew or Richmond - with of course, no thought to the fact that about 200,000 people would be at Westminster to look at Big Ben. It was horrendous and far worse than Prague. We fought our way down to the the pier and managed to book the last ferry of the day to Kew and back (GBP12 with Travelcard discount). My life on-board was short-lived; someone had brought a new-born baby onto the top deck and it was screaming its lungs out. Jeni wanted to stay but I just couldn't contemplate 3 hours trapped on a small ferry with that. Bye, bye Jeni, have a good trip

It seems I am tired of life

We met back at the apartment around 6pm and decided to enjoy the glorious summer evening down by the Thames, this time in a non-tourist area next to Hammersmith Bridge where there are 2 pubs close together and great views of the river
