How to lose 15 pounds before lunch

Arrived at the Mandarin Oriental this morning fresh as a daisy after not sleeping a wink on the flight over. It was nice to be allowed to check in at 8:00am, instead of being told to come back in six hours. It was also nice to be offered coffee in a pretty china cup and to be escorted up to our room by the italian kid that checked us in. This is a nice hotel. Probably the nicest I've stayed at.

We met up with Will and went for a walk. It was still early enough that the streets were relatively quiet. We walked until we found a place that looked good for breakfast and each ordered a simple breakfast. Coffee, a couple of eggs and some toast for three people is apparently worth £45 in London. Yikes.

We strolled down to the Museum of Natural History, a place that I'd been wanting to see for some time. It is easily the most beautiful building I've ever seen. The archives were good too - though, what was on display to the public was not as impressive as in the museum in Natural History Museum in New York City. Nature produces some pretty awesome stuff.

It was good that we accomplished something in the morning, as we ended up napping for the rest of the day. Just as well that we did - I'm not sure we could have afforded to have lunch!
