Chiyo: London Bucket List

September 3, 2011

This morning we had to get up yet again at an early time so we could go on our panoramic tour of London. The tour started at 9:30, and we were off to areas like Kensington Street, and the “City of London.” A majority of the trip was from the coach bus, where our tour guide would point out popular attractions such as Westminster Abbey, the bank where you have to have at least 100 million pounds to be a member of, The Tower of London, and much, much more. We took a short break halfway through the tour and stopped at St. Paul’s Cathedral, which is better known for the cathedral where Prince Charles married Lady Di. Once we were done walking around it was back on the bus, where we got gorgeous views of the London Bridge, and the London Eye. The tour ended at 12:30, and my two roommates and I headed back to our neighborhood of Ealing Broadway for some much needed R & R. 

The plan for tonight is to stay put, because we’ve all been running off of 5 hours of sleep max, due to getting adjusted still, and raging a little too hard since we’ve gotten here. Some of the CAPA kids are going to Ministry of Sound, one of the “hottest nightclubs in London,” but the girls in my triple and I plan on catching up on sleep since we’re going to Camden Market and Primrose Hill tomorrow. I’ve been compiling a list of things I want to do while I’m in London, so here is the start to my London Bucket List!
