Mr. Bean haunts us in London

2015-06-27 11.34.45_resizedAs we exit the museum, we saw a bike rental rack and immediately thought of Mr. Bean; so we decided should take them for a spin.

They were only two bikes remaining so it was ment to be.  After struggling with instructions, we printed out our codes and we’re ready to ride  Maggie was on her bike in no time only problem was mine was broken, so here we were one bike and I was the one walking?   Wouldn’t you think youth would 20150626_140027 give up her bike?  NO Maggie road and I walked and I walked and I walked until we found the next bike rental on the other side of the park.

Finally we were off! We cruise from one end of Hyde Park to the other through St James Park around Green Park by Buckingham Palace and more.  It was great fun at the end of the day.  It was now 8 o’clock, and we were starving we headed back to the hotel to clean up for dinner.

Maggie rides a bike like she drives a car, with a led foot and one speed, fast!

We settled on a really nice French Brasserie in Piccadilly with a 1920 jazz corefor dinner. The only challenge was in shorts and a t-shirt Maggie was in short short shorts and a tank top.  They gave us a table just the same only in the corner of the bar. We proceeded to ingest more baguette and butter than I thought was humanly possible.  We had a splendid dinner and really enjoyed it. The only challenge was all the waiters tried to serve Maggie drinks thinking she was 18 and couldn’t understand when she said no thank you.

About JSH

There are more than 195 countries in the world by my count and I want to see them all before they all start to look the same – The United Nations has 192 members, but they do not recognized two independent countries, the Vatican City and Kosovo. U.S. Department of State recognizes 194 independent countries around the world, but their list has a political agenda and is missing Taiwan. All of this is without getting into the dozens of territories and colonies that are sometimes called “countries” such as Puerto Rico, Bermuda, Greenland, Palestine, Western Sahara, and even the components of the United Kingdom (such as Northern Ireland, Scotland, Wales, and England) and without counting states and provinces like Texas and Montréal that think they are independent countries. No madder how you count or tag them they are changing, starting to look the same and losing a little bit of themself every day. I do not want to see the world through the eyes of Las Vegas or Disney, like reading the Cliff Notes of a Hemingway novel; you get the idea but miss the point! Life is short, but how long live is up to you…
