Going Strong in Wisbech

Well we made it to Wisbech a couple of days ago, but we no longer have consistent access to the internet so blogs might come and go from here on out.
Just before we left London we went for a ride on the London Eye. It was a lot of fun, but one cool thing that happened is that on the bubble with us was Gary Dourdan! That doesn't sound impressive, but he is the actor that plays Warrick on CSI. Amanda and I never went up to him to talk to him, partially because we didn't want to bug him and partially because we are both shy, but we did snap some photos of him when we thought he wasn't looking. It was awesome.
On the 4th we headed back to the airport to pick up our rental car. Everything was going fairly smooth until it was time to start driving. It took a bit of getting used to, driving on the left side of the road and once I ground the curb because I am not used to how the road looks from that side of the car. Roundabouts are everywhere and take some getting used to for driving. I basically drive it like I stole it and get is fun! By now I am used to driving on the opposite side. It still gets me once in a while, but it is more or less okay.
Finding our cottage in the town of Wisbech was hard. Turns out construction crews were doing work in front of the entrance when we arrived at night which is why we couldn't find it. We eventually found it after an hour, but it was a bit frustrating. The cottage is really nice and we will show you all photos when we get home, but we are happy we got this place.
We got to see Allison yesterday (Amanda's cousin) as well as today and will get to see her all day on Friday. She is only a few miles away in a town called Kings Lynn so it is easy to get there.
Dinner times are hard to figure out. Most places close after lunch and don't re-open until 6:30 or 7:00pm for supper. Last night we tried to make taco salad for supper as we have a kitchen, but it was a total disaster. It is hard to find the same ingredients here as we can get at home and we ended up making nachos and cheese with some really strong goats cheese which was interesting to say the least.
Much more has been happening but I cannot remember it all and I must get going. I hope that everyone is having fun at home and we look forward to seeing you all again in a couple weeks.
