Don’t judge me. Don’t you dare judge me.
In the words of Sweeney Todd, there is no place like London. Even the air is prestigious. There was something so enchanting about seeing all of these famous landmarks such as Buckingham Palace and Big Ben. And, I will be the first to admit that the British accent can send me fluttering.
I also found an odd comfort in seeing houses again. And of course, having everything be in your native tongue was freeing. I got in kind of late Friday night, so I mainly just walked around the area where my friends live. Saturday though, Genevieve, Hannah and I hit it hard. We basically saw everything you “should see” in London. First off, we met up in Hyde Park:
and continued onto Trafalgar Square, where the National Gallery is:
and, of course, Aslan himself:
Then Buckingham Palace:
I snuck a picture of St. Paul’s Cathedral (where, like, omg, Prince William and Kate were like, MARRIED)
Oh, and there was an “Occupy London” protest going on outside of it.
We then walked around the Thames River and got to see Tower Bridge (which consequently is mistaken for “London Bridge” a lot… London Bridge is really lame.)
We then ate a traditional British meal at a cute little pub:
Yum. Then we finally finished off the “London” experience by seeing Big Ben, Parliament, The London Eye, and Westminster Abbey.
I honestly just don’t feel like writing more. Sorry. I’m tired.
