New Year's Eve

So I decided that it would be fun to go to London for New Year's Eve.

(As a side note, it's neat to say's even neater to be able to accomplish that! But I digress...)

I took a WAGN train to King's Cross Station. Unfortunately, I arrived on Platform 10b rather than Platform 9 3/4, but I got here nonetheless. I ended up at the British Library for a while looking at some of the exhibits. Among other things, I saw several pages from DaVinci's notebooks, the earliest known copy of Beowulf, and some of the tax stamps that helped set off the Revolutionary War.

After that, I took the tube to Piccadilly Square where I walked around for a bit. I passed the Planet Hollywood restaurant which was the eventual target of my last trip to Piccadilly Square. Just a bit further along, I stopped to listen to a band of Indian bagpipers who were raising money for the Asian Tsunami Relief.

After a nice dinner of pizza (yes, pizza...but it had chicken, bacon, and tomatoes...) followed by some tea I found this internet cafe. More details on New Year's Eve will follow later, as will pictures of my first few days here.
