Well, as you know Muris has been in London all week and flys back home tomorrow (Thursday 19th), from Saturday (guitar idol show) we arranged to meet up again in London before he went home, well today was that day.

What a great day, I hope he enjoyed it as much as I did biggrin.gif

I`m completly shattered, we did an awful lot of walking today but got around london a bit, Covent Garden, Trafalgar Square, Leicester Square, Whitehall, Denmark Street (a whole street full of guitar shops smile.gif) and of course not forgetting a trip on the London eye blink.gif something I wasnt too thrilled about being a real wimp when it comes to heights, however, Muris insisted laugh.gif and even threatened to quit GMC if I didnt go on it laugh.gif (I`m sure he wouldnt have! laugh.gif) but I am glad he made me go on it, in actual fact apart from the first 5 minutes I enjoyed every minute of it biggrin.gif

Later, after the trip on the London eye we met up with Muris`s good friend Emir (also an awesome guitarist well worth checking out, just check him out on youtube or his website here http://www.emirhot.com/ smile.gif)

Just a few pics to share with you all smile.gif

I'm glad you enjoyed your time in the UK Muris. London is definitely a great place. I'm going at the end of July. I'm half Londoner and most of my relatives are from there. But I'm from Blackpool which at all costs you should stay away from. I stay away from there biggrin.gif

Glad you had fun also Chris. Got to spend time with a guitar legend smile.gif

If you ever come to Somerset ( unlikely i know laugh.gif ) Im afraid the most extreme outing would be a trip to feed the ducks, and then of to the music shops laugh.gif laugh.gif
