Our first few steps in the big smoke provided a mighty contrast to our rather countrified life of the previous couple of weeks. London was, as you'd expect, teeming. We wasted no time in getting to the hotel, dumping our stuff, freshening up, and heading to Lord's.
We'd never been, and I felt that it would be irresponsible to pass up the opportunity of seeing a match at the home of cricket, so off we went. It was an easy tube ride, and before we knew it we were sitting in the afternoon sun, enjoying a snack, and politely applauding the Northants batsmen as they smashed the ball all around the ground.
We stayed for a few hours, had a nice walk around the ground, and then said farewell. Another great moment in sport.
