Well, that flight was a long one. I got up at 5:30 AM, hoping that I'd be able to sleep a bit on the plane. We flew at 4:00 PM Saturday our time, and during the 9 hour flight I didn't sleep for more than 15 minutes.

We finally arrived in Romford at noon yesterday (Sunday,) and I figured it would be good to kill the jet lag by staying up as late as possible. I managed to last till 9:00 PM local time, which works out to 1:00 PM home time. So I figure I was up for about 31.5 hours. All good except that I couldn't sleep last night, so I'm still tired. What's that all about?

Today we had a relaxing day and went out to the shops at Romford for a bit, followed by a trip to Thordon park for a walk. Here's the fellow that guards the entrance to the park.

We brought my TomTom to navigate and its sure different using it here vs in Nanaimo. Here we get traffic camera warnings, speed limit warnings and all kinds of things. Pretty neat.

Tomorrow we head up to Nottingham to visit my uncle and aunt… hopefully after a good night's sleep.
