Well my head is still spinning. Currently sitting in Hyde Park trying to take it all in. The first few days have been non-stop, filled with orientations, tours, and late pub nights. There is so much to do here and see I'm starting to think that four months isn't nearly enough time for everything. I don't even know where to start.
Fortunately where I am staying is in the kensington area which is an extremely wealthy area. I've seen more Ferraris, Lotus's, and Maserattis in one day than I have seen in my entire life. I've also been meeting people from all over the US and making a lot of friends. I have an awesome class schedule which gives me 4 day weekends for the entire semester and only 3 classes on tuesday and one on thursday. I'm starting to think that this is the best decision I have ever made. The pubs here are unlike anything back in the states. “It is a place where the beer flows like wine, and Where beautiful women instinctively flock like the salmon of Capistrano”. I am curious to see if they are as packed on monday and tuesday as they have been since I arrived thursday. I also did watch a “Futball match” at one of the pubs and I still don’t understand the brits fascination with such and uneventful game, yet I’ve never liked the sport and I probably never will.Tonight a group of us are going to stray away from the pubs and head to SoHo to find a club. Apparently There is some type of hip- hop concert going on in one of the clubs. Even tho I am not a big fan of hip-hop I am curious to compare the American scene to the british scene. I really just hope we make it back. The tube system is fairly complicated and I don't think any of us will be in the right state of mind to navigate a bus route back to kensington. The bus routes thankfully run 24 hours and our oyster-card (charlie card, Metrocard) is unlimited. A 24 hour bus schedule is something we should probably in the states, it would eliminate the need to ditch cabs in malden after a night in boston, but hey thats half the fun anyway so maybe not. So stay tuned it looks like I’ll be doing a lot of site seeing the next week and I am really anxious to get back to camden which is like canal street x10 and barter with all of the merchants.
P.S- Congrats to SHU football and my roommates their first win of the season. Also To my Boy C-Rich Tough loss but you played well on the big stage.. yes I still watched from 3,000 Miles away.
