World Trip 1999-2000: Day 115 – London, England

Highlights: Harrods, Hyde Park

We again stayed in Notting Hill but in a different hotel with a higher price and worst quality but hey the trip is almost over and I’ve seen more than enough hostels.

As today was somewhat of a rest day I tried to complete my shopping list.  This started with a visit to the expensive Harrods to buy the famous Harrod’s Bear as requested by my mum and a model English Bus for my nephew Andrew.

We then visited Hyde Park which is the largest royal park in London.  The pRk was created by Henry VIII as a hunting ground.  It has been used for duels, executions and horse racing.  Today the general public get to enjoy the park.

From here we walked up Oxford street looking for a soccer top for my brother in law Steve as per Lana’s request.  However we discovered later you can not get then in London 😦

An hour walk back to our room to save the fare, we are very broke at this point, and a Chinese meal ended the day.
