I think E and I were up for almost 24 hours traveling back home on Friday. Ugh. Connecting flights from London is absolutely horrible. Don't ever do it. It's just not worth the hassle. Also, if you've GOT to fly out of London, don't fly out of Gatwick. That airport is HORRIBLE - small, crazy crowds, noisy, and it was under construction while we were trying to navigate through - the lines were the worst! All in all, Heathrow is bad...but Gatwick is worse. :(
Some photos from the trip:

Protest photos from Budapest. Very calm as you can see...
