Quick London Update

So, forgot the card readers etc so pics will have to wait... Friday isn't so far anyways. Can't believe I'm pretty much half done the trip, thanks to the 26+ hour delay cutting off pretty well a day and a half.
Things I've done thus far:
-got on the wrong train first thing out of the airport (successfully corrected myself though!)
-Tower of London
-Tate Modern
-National Gallery- amazingly huge and beautiful huge gallery with tons of big name pieces ,Van Gogh, Picasso, Rembrandt, Rousseau (sp?), etc
-Seen Big Ben, Houses of Parliament, the London Eye (didn't ride it- its so slow it looks like it isn't moving!), Piccadilly Circus, Westminster Abbey, Tower Bridge, Buckingham Palace... etc etc
-Successfully gotten to the 2nd interview (tomorrow)... despite shaking like a leaf doing my Charlemagne presentation!

Lots of sightseeing and tube riding, haven't done too many things involving fees. Thinking about heading to Greenwich tomorrow to learn about, and straddle the Prime Meridian and hopefully a few more museums/ galleries! Paish & Vero, you'd LOVE all the free art galleries here (if you haven't been before?)
