London 2012! With the Olympics this close to home, we just had to go. We landed at Heathrow and were greeted by signs in the two official languages of the Olympics - English and French.Underground and were confronted by an imposing fan from the Czech Republic. He seemed to be about 7 feet tall and was decked out in a viking helmet in the colors of the Czech flag.
The Alexander Pope Hotel featured comfy rooms and a gorgeous park across the street leading up to the banks of the Thames.
