Is the room really spinning or am I just sleep deprived?

Day one in London!

sunny 65 °F

Sleep deprivation can do crazy things to ones body. I feel as though the room is spinning, or maybe like I am on a boat at sea, either way, I haven’t slept in almost 36 hours. I don’t know how doctors do it. Good thing I’m not a surgeon!

After a very interesting flight on British Airways from Seattle (I gave up my seat to the little guy I nanny for, he was so uncomfortable!). I spent almost nine hours roaming the aisles, doing crosswords on my iPod, and generally watching everyone else sleeping, we safely landed at London Heathrow Airport. A quick car ride later and we were nestled in at the Trafalgar Hilton right in the center of Trafalgar Square. The location is simply THE best, as we are right smack dab in the middle of every attraction, museum, and famous sight. Within a 5-10 minutes walk you could be at Buckingham Palace, The London Eye, Westminster Abbey, or Big Ben. Not to mention, within a several block radius are all the top theaters with some of the best shows in London.

Today was a day of getting settled, but I still managed to take in some amazing sights. With stroller and toddler in tow, we hit up many great places in just a couple of hours, mainly along the River Thames, where street perfromers were plenty! I hope you enjoy the photos, with a stroke of bad luck, or perhaps good fortune, my camera quit on me just days before I left. I am still learning some of the features of my new one, but I tried my best while juggling a diaper bag and stroller! I am now off to get some much needed sleep and hopefully I won't feel so dizzy when I wake up.

Nice, I think it's the telephoto shots that look particularly good.
