45 Days in London: Day 17

Life happens.

Today real life finally caught up with us. We spent most of the day in the flat, changing sheets, paying bills, returning emails, preparing lessons, making travel arrangements. It turns out that even in the "Royal Borough of Kensington and Chelsea" there are also mundane things that take place. :)

In the evening we took the tube to Piccadilly Circus and saw the musical Jersey Boys. The sound mix wasn't very good, but the characters are interesting and the music is a lot of fun. I had no idea Frankie Valli was responsible for so many great hits of the 60s and 70s. Language warning.

Piccadilly Circus is a night life hot spot—felt a little like Times Square in New York. We had a great time just walking through the neighborhood, soaking up the energy.

We also stumbled onto London's Chinatown.
