Having Cocktails before dinner
Weather was cool, but unfortunately at 11:55 it started to rain and continued for the next hour.
At the stroke of midnight the champagne bottles were popping and whistling and horns blowing.
This was a sight to behold at least once in your lifetime.
After the fireworks we walk in the cold rain seeking the shelter of a nice quite bar and cool libation. Since all other 2 million people had the same idea, we opted to walk until we found a cab and head back to the apartment.
Erin & I were determined and eventually successful in finding an open restaurant with a party still going on near our apartment. Gail & Jim joined us for one last toast, and we back to the apartment shortly after 2. ( The crowd here was more of Erin's age group, but I enjoyed it anyway)
Today was a late start, all of us getting up and about after 11:00A.
We browsed and shopped a bit at Harrods, rested and had a dinner of comfort food (Italian) and returning here by 11:15.
Tomorrow we will be back in the swing of walking and playing tourist.
Plan to be out and about by 10.
