We were staying with them in their apartment near St Paul’s Cathedral and we traveled all over London seeing museums, parks, and many wonderful places in the city. We went to plays, ate in some marvelous restaurants and were fortunate to be guided by women who lived there. We love London and have visited many times." Photo by Emily McNally & Dana Finnegan.
