We arrived in London early this morning (2 am EST), having not slept more than two hours between the three of us. Exhausted and dazed we trudged through Heathrow and made it to the underground. We rode the across town to the flat we rented from some university students home for the holiday. We met our host Roman, dropped our stuff in our room, and decided against our training to take a nap, rather than push through the exhaustion to quickly adjust to our new timezone. Our planned hour and a half soon became four hours. We arose around 3 pm local time and Roman made us some rice and tea for mid afternoon meal (aka breakfast). We chatted with Roman for several hours, getting to know our Russian host over the delicious meal. We're going to go see something tonight and we'll let you know what that is when we do.
