One of today's discoveries was that you can get good food for a low price at a pub. ... We roamed further today. We made it around both Hyde and Kensington Parks. I feel that by the end of this trip my walking distance will have greatly increased. I have noticed a definite split in our group now into smaller traveling groups. Riding the bus was an experience. I was surprised to see that you don't pay as soon as you get on one of the double deckers, but wait for a "ticket taker" to come around. ... I rode the Tube, another name I've learned, for the first time with the group tonight. It made me feel like I've conquered one more mystery of the city but I'm not completely sure of it yet.

As far as the traffic situation is concerned, a good rule of thumb while getting used to the reversed traffic patterns is to "do as the natives do."
