Well we had a shaky start on Thursday. In Emporia everything seemed fine. We met at the Amend GS Center and divided into cars and headed to the airport. We arrived at the airport 2 hours before our flight, or so we thought. When I went to ask about checking the group in, they told me that our flight didn't exist and we had been put on the flight that was leaving in 15 minutes. Talk about panic. The United Customer Service staff were great and got us checked in quickly and held the plane for us. Now our worry was that our luggage would arrive with us. We made the flight and from then on our trip was pretty uneventful. We did have a couple of meltdowns because some didn't have time to get food in KC before we left, but we fed everyone in Chicago and actually had a little extra time there.
Except for a little turbelance in the beginning, our flight from Chicago to London went well, except that every one was tired when we arrived. We managed to navigate the London Underground with our luggage and made it to Pax Lodge without too much trouble. We left our stuff at Pax Lodge and then went to the Camden Markets to do some shopping and grab a bite to eat. Then we had a tour of Pax Lodge and a Royal Cream Tea. Now we are meeting to head to the Lion King and then collapse in our beds for the night.
