Our first stop was in London, where we were treated like royalty by Tim and Anita Hill, who live on the outskirts of London in a wonderful town called Claygate.  The weather was spectacular—not what you usually expect in London!

 Tim fed us homemade Thai chicken curry, and we got to hang out on their beautiful patio in the sun!

 Here, we picked up Joshua, their 18 year old son who will be with us most of the trip!  As he brought his trumpet (and he’s an awesome jazz player), he’s earned the nickname Jazzman for our trip!
