Off and Away

Here we are on Wednesday, waiting for the shuttle bus that will take us to SeaTac. We will take British Airways Flight 48 to London. It leaves at 6:10 PM, which means that we will be flying overnight to Europe. With all that happens aboard a commercial airplane (people eating and walking about and watching the movie), I hope I can get some sleep. We will be landing tomorrow morning at Heathrow Airport. From there we catch the underground into London. The plan is to visit the London Museum — especially the Greek antiquities exhibit. I’m certain we will be seeing other sights, but we will have to wait and find out. It will be an adventure! We will probably have to wait until we arrive in Athens to connect to the Internet and give you the next update. However, you can write to me and leave a message or ask a question.
