Sunday 23 April:French Election & Alexandra Palace
Getting there made me practice my traffic jam driving !!!! There is also a football match in wembley stadium although the queues there are nothing compared to the various ones at the lycee. In the end i had to jump out of the car (i was driving) and exchance with simon...but being without coat, or even a drink and when told the queues about 3 hours long (that was just the wembley site (queues like that all over london) . i had to give up (was dying for the loo too) and return home. I also check on my guests as they were doing the Tower of London and due to Marathon it was also a bit delayed. So with clearer plan and nw sure we would not be able to go and visit more stuff that day i return to wembley more prepared and this time the queus were less bad . Only about 1.30h. Not quite the best result with Lepen getting through the second round :( We all came back about the same time.
To make the most oft he sunshine . i drove everyone to Alexandra Palace to see the views and look for some squirrels. Eventually found one althugh he was a bit scared.
Afterward we all went to dinner in our usual turkish restaurant .
