Arrived at Heathrow at 6am, after a 15 hour flight.
It was raining.
Caught the Underground to my hostel in Kensal Green.
Dropped my bags in and went exploring. Spent a couple of hours in the West London Crematorium, a hugh cemetary next to the hostel.
It's all overgrown and really old, I saw some squirrels. I had a look at the tank stands. They are/were part of their gas supply, there is an inner tank which rises and falls inside the frame work. Then checked out the canel and wondered into Wormwood scrab which is awhole lot of soccer and rugby fields surrounded by scrub and I saw a bumble bee.
Then I got an oyster card with a 7 day zone 1 & 2 put on it (£20) and when into the city. It was about 5pm and everything was closing. So I walked a long the themes, Went to Trafalger Sq and the gallery, Hyde Park, Wellington Arch and Buchingham Place.
