We all got up around 5am. I had to run down to the Tube and buy our tickets to get to Victoria Station. Went back to Marlin Apts. to meet the family and say goodbye to Suzy and TD. Something wasn't quite fair. Abby and I had to walk to the Tube station in the rain while Suzy and TD were picked up at the door by a "driver" in a black Mercedes! They were headed to Bedford where Suzy was going to work.
Abby and I took the Tube to Victoria then bought tickets on the Gatwick Express train to the airport. Got there and waited in queue for over an hour. Went through security, got frisked. Went to gate, got frisked again. My passport was also flagged by TSA for a random check. Also, we were sniffed by a bomb dog and Abby's bag was randomly swiped and tested for deadly chemicals. We got to the gate and only sat for 10 minutes before we boarded the plane.
