LONDON ENGLAND November 2-10, 2004.
A Thumbnail View of Our Trip, size of photos reduced.
New Photos! These were taken with a much better camera, (Debbie and Pieter's) and a much better photographer (Debbie). I reduced the size by 30%. Between the two of us, we have close to 600 photos. This time I am using more of the family photos since some of you asked about them.
