2009: a good start

img_4904In keeping with the theme of moving to a new city, we decided to do something for New Year’s Eve we had never done before. In lieu of a bar or house party, we joined the 1/2 million other crazies to watch in person the fireworks exploding off the London Eye over the Thames and in view of Big Ben. For the first time instead of watching revelers living it up in the freezing cold crowds, we joined them. Totally worth it (plus, we did it from the comfort of the Queen Mary).
