We got up fairly early and after showers etc, we walked, along with the hordes of commuters, over to Barons Court tube station. We caught the District Line to Embankment then the Bakerloo line to Lambeth and walked up to the Red Lion. We yarned to Harry for a while down in the cellar then went up and saw Jen, just back from Africa. We looked at her photos for a while then went down to the office and packed up our tea chest¹, sealed it up and left the paperwork and money with Harry.

After a sandwich with Has next door in the cafe, we caught a bus over to Piccadilly and walked up to Leicester Square and found the offices of TravelMore Limited. It took an hour or so to arrange a return flight to New Zealand for Linda and Jenny Bell2 and we paid a deposit as well.

We poked around a few shops then returned to the travel office to confirm that the booking had gone through. At seven we met a healthy looking Louie and Jenny at Break For the Border for drinks and dinner. We spent a couple of hours there then caught the tube back out to Fulham. We had a couple of drinks at the Carlton Arms then grabbed our stuff from the flat and headed home. 

1A tea chest was a box commonly used for shipping excess stuff back to New Zealand.

2Linda and Jennie were going back to New Zealand for a wedding in March 1991.
