I meant London
31.05.2007 - 27.08.2007 21 °C
Well, well, well! Em an I had a nice time in Paris, and in Marseille as a matter of fact. To tell you the truth, something really crazy just sort of came alive during our last day in Paris, when we went to Versailles, and here we are in London, beaming faces and doing as much as we can.
This is a great city, but the thing that really drove me wild is that when we were walking down the street, passersby were speaking in ENGLISH! Don't get me wrong, I love going to countries where the language is not my own, it's really fun. I had forgotten what it was like to understand everything and (almost) everyone around me, though. We went to a bookstore, and all of the books were in English. Between that and the caffeine (never a good idea for me) that I had that morning, I was bouncing off the walls.
London is beautiful, the weather is even more unpredictable than I expected--never seen more sunshowers in my whole life than in the past two days alone. It's a bit tough because I've done all of the shopping that I needed to do for the past few weeks, and we found everything I needed rather inexpensively, sent home some stuff, and I'm good to go now. However, I feel kind of poor after having spent it... Should put me in well for the next two months, though.
Camden Town is wicked, so much to see there and so many great little markets and shops. The Thames Walk by our hostel is nice, we've found a pub we now frequent called the Mudlark, I highly recommend it for dinner. Not too expensive and really good food. Most importantly, great music. We also met a friend from France on our way over named Guillaume who we met up with last night here, and he's actually on his way to our hostel now to hang out for the afternoon. Tonight we're off to see Blood Brothers, the show Anna's been raving about for 5 years already. We got our tickets this morning in the rain and watched the changing of the guards at Buckingham in the beautiful sunshine.
I'm off to meet up with Guillaume at the station, Emily's taking a nap right now. Liverpool on Friday, then IRELAND!
