Good morning, and greetings from the fuuuture. It’s Thursday morning, around 6:58am right now. I woke up at 4:50 this morning with an intense craving for a sausage and cheese breakfast sandwich, but tried to make myself go back to sleep. That obviously didn’t work out so well. So here I am, catching up on Google Reader and eating this £3 lasagna that I picked up at the store yesterday (thank god!). I had a feeling I might want a snack at some point.
I’m pretty sure Brianna, my travel companion, is asleep right now. And I salute her. I wish I were too. We were planning on heading to Borough Market around 10am… but hopefully we can head out earlier.
We arrived yesterday afternoon and did a lot of walking our first day. Initially the idea was we’ve been on a plane for 10 hours, our legs need to move! But then around 6pm, which was when sleep deprivation hit the both of us, we couldn’t get back to the apartment fast enough.
Anyway, I’ll try to update while I’m here. It’s hard to upload photos since it seems this laptop won’t let me save image files, so my award-winning iPhone photography will have to wait to be shared with the public until I return.
Just for fun, here are some items on our To Do list: Tower of London, Fashion & Textiles Museum, Design Museum, V&A, tea in the park with Kendra, Jack the Ripper Walking Tour, visit Brighton, visit Oxford, go shopping. There’s a bit more, but these are the things I feel pretty confident about conquering in the 5 more days I have here. Yesterday we saw Trafalgar Square, St. Paul’s Cathedral, Big Ben, Parliament, National Theater, the Old Vic, and FLEET STREET (yes, I was singing the Sweeney Todd anthem in my head).
Anyway, I’m off! Hope all is dandy in the states!
