Wednesday was our off day so we only walked around from 8a am to 8 pm. We got to see the city. Since it was Wednesday, Westminister Abby closed at 12 so we didn't get to see in for the third yearin a row.
Today S and I walked an area where I had not been. It is a very commercialized area with lots of construction and noise. Our weather has been really nice. While we were walking we had a rain shower as we were approaching the British Museum. We went inside until the rain let up which wasn't long. We did go to see the display of the gold medals that will be given away at the London Olympics. There were lots of people around but all of them were scurrying around so as of 2:30 we had engaged no one.. We were on our way back to our hotel but decided to cut through the University of London. We came out near a beautiful church building which the group Monday had said had been turned into apartments. The door was open so S and I went in. Part of the building is being used for a chapel. We went in to look around. It was beautiful and huge. The front of the chapel has been partitioned off to make a much smaller area. It is being rented out to a group that is holding services there. While we were there two girls came in. We asked if they were part of the church. They said they were getting their master's degrees and were from Turkey. We talked to them and told them that we would get someone from KCBC to contact them. They had visited another church in the area this morning and were looking for a place to listen to music. We are so thankful for time we spent with them.
Tomorrow we meet the other team to walk in an area that I walked two years ago.
