Tuesday, we went to Greenwich to see the prime meridian. It was a pretty cool observatory with some displays of old tools they used to use to figure out time and longitude. There was a great view of London from the south. After walking around a bit we headed to the football match. The tube was packed with people going to the stadium. Arsenal is a big deal...and the stadium is a big deal. it is pretty new and huge. Bryn has a photo on her blog. We had really good seats 20 rows up behind one goal. We had a great view of the 2 goals Arsenal got to win the game! Everyone was so into the match...there was cheering and singing. Almost no one got out of their seats while the were playing. not like in the states when people run down to concession during the game. anyways it was super fun! And we owe it all to Paul (Elis's
boyfriend) who gave Byrn
and I his tickets...so sweet!
The next day we got up pretty early and made our way into town to get tickets to Cabaret. After managing to find the cheapest tickets we could for later in the day, we went to the national gallery. That was ok
. there is a lot of old art which i am not too into but they did have some impressionists work which i really like. We werent
in there for too long because we had to get to Buckingham palace to watch the changing of the guards. It was packed but we did see them enter the gates and play some tunes. There was a lot of pushing and shoving to get to the gates to just get a glimpse of what was going on. I peeked in but it didnt
seem too exciting. They need a better system so everyone can see...but i guess they have been doing it this way for years so why would they change now.
After navigating our way out we went for a nice lunch and Nando's
, this chicken place that is Bryn's favorite. It was pretty good and not too expensive. Then it was off to the show! It was at the Lyric Theatre...which was really nice inside. not too big and the matinee wasnt
sold out. We ended up moving down a few rows for a better view. The show was fun...good singing and dancing. there were some very scandalous parts...of course
it was Cabaret.
Yesterday we were on Elis's
radio show. Here is the link...I havent
listened to it all the way through so i dont
know what i sound like. http://www.myspace.com/thecornershowskfm
It is show 17...i dont
think it is posted yet but check back later. It was great to be on a radio show...never done that before. After the show I went down to the Tate Modern. It was a really cool museum and they had lots of art that I really like. It was really crowded and there were lots of students laying around working on their own masterpieces.
After that i went to the British museum which was very overwhelming. there were so many people and the place is huge. I walked around a little bit but then I met up with Bryn for some food. We didn't have a big night just met up with some of Bryn and elis
' friends for a couple of pints and Chinese food.
Today we are going to hang around....I am tired. I have had such a busy schedule...it is great...I am having such a good time but my feet need a rest. Tonight we have some plans and tomorrow we are heading down to the beach at Brighton! I only have a couple days left here but I am sure we will live it up!
