We've been traveling pretty hard and fast paced so far. We are in need of a little travel pit stop to sort out a few logistical things. What we mean by pit-stop is not seeing much and just getting things done: Visa applications, more travel research and planning, photo uploading, website tweaking, etc. We figured London would a good place to do this for a few reasons. First, it's just over the "pond" from Washington DC for easy mailing and receiving. We need to send in our primary passports to get our Russia and China visas, while we continue on to our 2 months in Africa with our secondary passports. (What? Two passports? If you missed it, see our explanation from this post.) Oh, and another form of sending… fast internet!! We love fast internet!Our second reason for our London is that although it's expensive, it has a great assortment of anything we may need to replace, upgrade or simply forgot to get. Electronic stuff, rivets for our packs and other random stuff.Of course, you can't go to London and do nothing. We did see some classic London sights. Our little joke was to say the Chevy Chase's famous line from National Lampoon's European Vacation, "Hey kids, Big Ben… Parliament." We did see other places too, like a few museums and the London Eye, but we didn't beat ourselves up for missing anything.
