Photographs of fancy tricks to get your kicks at sixty-six (Elvis Costello)

We've had a terrific day on the underground and wandering around Oxford St. looking at all the bizarre sights that we don't see in Doha. Loads of PDAs for a start. Loads of green as well and trees without leaves.

We've noticed quite a lot - mainly the great service and friendly conversations that take place here. In Doha we are spoiled by the respect that is paid us and we thought that wouldn't be the same here but I'm happy to say that's not been the case so far (unlike NZ which is terrible for service - usually it feels like you're putting someone out).

We're staying at the Chelsea Millennium/Copthorne Hotel. It is on the grounds of Chelsea Football club at Stamford Bridge. Suzie will love this! It's a very swank place and I got a great deal on it via the internet - hence our stay here.

Tomorrow we're planning our usual walk along the embankment to Westminster and then to London Bridge. It's a magic feeling walking along by the Thames and I love the Bridge - one of my favourite places in the world. Will aim to download some photos tomorrow.
