Well, I wanted warm weather in London and I got it! What I failed to recall is that when I was here last summer, I was holed up at the lovely Marriott Kensington, which comes furnished with air conditioning. Flats in the city, decidedly, do not. It is so warm in the flat that I'm leaving for the day to go sit in the very-air conditioned Costa coffee down the street. How much do I love that when I walk in, the very lovely girl behind the counter calls out "Medio skinny latte for the lady!" I'll now have her add "iced" to that beverage order.
Verona pictures coming soon. I'll upload them tonight when it's dark and the sun isn't beating through the floor-to-ceiling 8 foot high window.
