May 25, 2009: First Day in London
We started off our day with our last hotel breakfast of bread and croissants with nutella. We took the metro to the train station, which was an adventure with all of our luggage. It was also an adventure to climb up and down multiple stairways in the train station. Once we were on the train, we were all treated very well. They served us multiple courses of food, and most of us even got some champagne. Once we arrived to London we went to our hotel which is about a block long. Then we walked around for the day, since we do not get our passes for the tube until tomorrow. We saw Big Ben, Buckingham Palace, “the eye” which is a giant Ferris wheel, Westminster Abbey, and plenty more. Then we went to the British Museum for a few hours. After a long tiring day most of us had a cheap dinner at Subway. Tonight most of us are relaxing and a few people are seeing their first West End Theatre District musical.
