First day (back) in London and I love it. Honestly, I wasn't overly excited to come to London because I have already been, but I love it. There is a good possiblity that it is because there is English all around. Amazing! But, I am excited to not feel like i have to go do EVERYTHING, simply because I have done it already. When we got here from Paris, we had 1.5 hours to do wahtever before we met as a group. of course most people wanted to take naps. I wasn't tired, so decided to wander out on my own. I love all these girls I am with, but haven't had alone time, so that was really nice to have. I took the tube to Green Park, which happened to be right on the edge of buckingham palace. I sat there for a bit and caught up in journal writing and strolled by the palace. I had my iPod on for a bit then spent some time just pondering life.
Tonight was fun as well and part of why I love London, too. I went with a few girls to look for cheap musical tickets and found discounted ones for Les Miserables for tonight. We had third row seats and it was spectacular. I saw it several years ago when Hemet High did it, but for those of you who know me well, you know I don't remember details of things like that. I completely forgot the story line. The plot was great, but the actual production of it was breath taking. My favorite scene was probably the last baracade part, which was done in slow motion. Everyone's timing was seamlessly perfect. I really want to try and go see Phantom of the Opera as well, since I have never seen it. My top choice was Mary Poppins, but it is no longer playing here. bummer. Well, it's really late, so I'm gonna head to bed! Goodnight!
PS, any "must do" suggestions for London would be greatly appreciated, especially if they are slightly outside the "normal" london tourist stuff. :)
