Not so Kewl

So, on my way back to Prague, I had a little bit of a layover in London. It wasn't long enough to go see Stonehenge and guarantee I'd be back in time for my flight, so I decided to do something less risky and closer. On a tube map, Kew Gardens looks close, so I decided to go there. It looks close, but it took an hour to get there- definitely more than I expected. It is a cute area though. Right by the station are some shops that are very quaint and I would guess there have been shops there for hundreds of years. The houses are adorable, each with their own little well-kept lawn. It's only about a block to Kew Gardens through the pretty neighborhood, so I should have had plenty of time in the Gardens. WRONG! The line just to get in the gardens looked something like over an hour long. It went out the gardens and down the street. I would definitely not have had time to see anything, if I even could get in before I had to leave to return to the airport. Instead, I got some local cheese for lunch at one of the shops and headed back to the airport.
