London Trip- Day 7

I think today has been one of my favorite days so far. We spent most of the day at the street market on Portobello Road in Notting Hill. The whole time we were there the song from Bed Knobs and Broomsticks played in my head. There was so much to see... pretty amazing. From there we went to Harrod's Department Store because we had a little time to spare before our play started. It was unlike anything that I have ever seen before. It was seven stories and took up a whole city block and extavigent in every aspect, from the items in the store to the way it was decorated. There were even men with trays of champagne in some of the designer rooms. There was even a room for pets where you could spend over 100 pounds on a food and water bowl for your little pooch. The toy room was unbelievable. There was a toy car that a kid could ride in for just under 10,000 pounds... Rex won't be getting one of those for Christmas.
Wicked was also amazing... the theater here rivals that in New York and we were told that actors come from all over the world for a chance to perform. Like the rest of our trip, it was a once in a lifetime experience.
I probably won't post tomorrow. We are going to have a low key day and stay in Egham and catch a service at Hillsong Church tomorrow evening. Monday we plan to finish seeing the sights in London (I will post then). We are having a blast but look forward to seeing our little guy Tuesday... that is if the Volcanic dust lifts and they open flights in and out of London again.

The chocolate room reminded me of Willy Wonka
