One of the benefits of visiting London in the summer is the extended daylight hours, well extended compared to Honolulu. With the sun rising so early (and setting after 8pm), it's relaxing to take a peak out at the empty streets in the morning. On the Sunday morning (27 May 07) during my visit it was rather too early to head out to breakfast so after using the complimentary coffee service in the room to make my first cup of java for the day, I took in the views from the bay windows of my Kenilworth hotel room.
The top pic below is looking east at the corner of Great Russell and Bloomsbury Streets. A few steps beyond this corner is the British Museum and a branch of the Wagamama chain of noodle shops. The bottom pic is looking west. This is the route I would take to Tottenham Court Road Station and to the closest Boots drugstore. The red-brick building on the left is the Marlborough Hotel, a sister hotel of the Kenilworth in the Radisson Edwardian chain. Both pics taken before 6am.
