One week down

how many to go?

So I have not been in the US for a week now. I have spend most of my time in London, and will continue on here until the end of the week.

Today Maren and I started our touristy plans, visiting the givens: tower bridge, tower of london and so on. It was fun. I find what is most interesting is when we just walk around. We walked around Oxford and Piccadilly Circus for a couple hours before we returned to the hostel. I thought it was much more interesting than anything else we did before it. The people we saw, and heard (yes eavesdropping) gave us a peek into the actual London, not just the touristy part.

While on the bus I was blankly staring out the window past some work men, and one of them caught my eye, and started to dance. I think he must of thought I was sad or something and he wanted me to smile. He was quite amusing.

We returned to the hostel to get ready for our night out. We went and saw Les Mis, a musical I know by heart but had never seen until tonight. We went yesterday and got 50% off tickets, it was a good performance, not the best I have seen, but very good.

Maren wants to go to another one, musical that is, and it is possible if we cut some other stuff out, but we shall see.

Another crazy thing happened once we got to the show. I ran into another person, but somebody I already knew, Clairellyn Smith. She is visitng London with her mother and she was seeing Les Mis the same night as us! It is crazy how this stuff happens so many miles away with no plans.

Well I am off,

Alice
