done with london and am now in scotland! all by myself … yikes! i’ve been traveling alone, but this is the first time my destination didn’t lead me to a friend.
finished out england by watching the olympic opening ceremonies on a big screen with friends, seeing an olympic event live (cycling), walking around south kensington, being jealous of photos at a travel photography exhibit, seeing some random acrobats performing on the street, going to the royal albert music hall for some classical music, going into the museum of natural history and exploring the british museum, eating a famous brick lane salted beef bagel, drinking a bottle of wine and eating a delicious meal with friends at the narrow (a gordon ramsay restuarant), spending a day in oxford and my last evening with friends at the leather bottle. i really did enjoy england so much and had a hard time leaving. i was there at the perfect time though … got some really exceptional weather and a little olympic spirit!
