Lost & Found

Back in November, on a train from London to Windsor, Joey left behind Michael's camera with, at that time, the only pictures of our trip to London.

As soon as we realized he had left the camera on the train, we ran back to the train station, but the train was gone. Apparently, Lost & Found on the London Rail is not such a high tech department. The station master at Windsor called the station master at Oxford, who told him Lost & Found items were only returned to London (the origin of the train), once per week. And for that particular train that day was Monday. Unfortunately, we would be on a plane back to the US on Monday.

Well, there is a happy ending to the story. The camera finally ended up in Bristol, England and after six weeks of calling train stations and enlisting the help of a friend in London, the camera finally ended up back home with us this week. Pictures intact! Interestingly enough, after we got over our disappointment of losing the camera, we purchased a disposable camera at a gift shop at Windsor Castle--which is now lost. Anyway, here are the lost pictures from Michael's camera:
Waiting for the On/Off Bus outside the National Gallery off Trafalgar Square.

In the cab on the way to High Tea at The Ritz
Big Ben & Parliament from the On/Off Bus
