The family woke up at a more reasonable "holiday time" today around 8am. I headed out to run a couple errands while Melissa and the girls got ready. I met them a short while later at the Marriott breakfast buffet.
After breakfast, we went back up and packed our bags for a short trip a bit further east and south from where we had been staying. Took a short ride between Earl's Court Station and Victoria Station - nearby our home for the next few days. As we were walking towards our hotel, The Georgia House, we stumbled upon some famous guy's home:
The girls decided on some strange pose on the left, Siena saluting while Mara looks cool.
The picture to the right gives a sense of the neighborhood and our hotel. Beautiful architecture and building that have probably been here for hundreds (and hundreds) of years.
Living like Harry Potter
Our room at the Georgian House was decorated in Harry Potter theme:
Stealing the Crown Jewels
Throughout today, we visited Piccadilly Circus (Siena loves saying that word in a British accent) and tourist district. We also went to an Escape Room where we spent an hour trying to "rob the crown jewels":
For those that may not know, an Escape Room is a cooperative game where you solve clues and puzzles to try and achieve some task (or set of them). We were bank robbers attempting to get the crown jewels from a locked vault (behind Siena and Dad). You have one hour to solve the clues, puzzles, etc and exit the room. We didn't quite make it in 1 hour but we were very close and eventually got out of the room.
Dinner and Stuff
Later, we headed over to Carnaby district where we ate dinner at Rosa's (see Siena's Food Review). Also had pre-dinner appetizers and drinks at the Rum Kitchen that had a fun (slightly noisy) atmosphere. Old oil drums on the ceiling and a "One Love" sign to remind of the Islands. While they didn't have it on the menu, I asked about a Pain Killer, and the waitress just smiled and said, "of course we have those!". The food was okay with almost everything being "jerk-style" and a bit spicy for the girls:
