The front row of upper level of double decker bus is the best seating :). Any seat at The Royal Albert Hall is fantastic- and the sound for Mark Knopfler & his band was super..great to hear the old faves “Sultan of Swing”, etc. and new music too. Pub lunch-supper (lupper?) by the Thames was lovely and the gardens! And many meals of ethnic food throughout the week that flew by. Every street holds history, fashion and interesting people. The Arsenal Stadium stands proud across the road from our flat
that we’ll be bidding goodby to tomarrow, ready to fly home to summer in Long Island. Cheers!

they said that they were switching gates and immigration had to be set up. we were not allowed to get out of our seats while we sat for 45 minutes and the pilots said soon, soon and soon.
then the 10 federal marshalls came on the plane in formation and went right to the back part of the plane. we were in the front. they proceeded to take out two guys, one big and mean looking that I had noticed in Heathrow, and all their stuff. they may have taken another man also or he might have been involved in the raid. they came back in five minutes and took another guy off with all his stuff. then the pilot told us we could all leave. we flew through customs and immigration.
This is one that probably wont make the news..and happens more often than any of us wants to consider..
If the flight attendants-crew knew this all along they sure put on a good show- something seemed fishy when we landed really quickly at K (with bad weather) and no time for clean up- they said to store our food trays under seats.
Steve and I were a bit “wound up” and easily made it up to midnight (5AM London time) so no jet lag this AM- that’s the small upside of this story. I was amazed at how I didnt have a panic response as many of the passengers did..not even a delayed one. Only “wound up”. I’ll take that 🙂 .
