We have an amazing chef here at the center, so today we were treated to a delicious mexican dinner of enchiladas and homemade salsa. We shoveled our food and ran to the Box Office at Lion King, just to find out that the student discounts are only offered on weekdays. We decided we needed to venture to Harrod's where we were taken back by the outrageous prices! It's so fun trying to guess how much a dress costs! Too bad the tube station shut down and we had to walk all the way to south kensington. We figured that would be okay since Ben's cookies is there... closed... so mad! Instead we walked in and out of pastry shops until we found fabulous crepes that were well worth the hunt! Nothing better than a late night snack after walking all day long! And that's all for today my friends!

It's definitely bed time! Today was jam packed full of events and I am ready to hit the sack. School started today, so reality set in. I had forgotten that the reason I actually came here was for a "study" abroad! It's amazing how much material is crammed into such a short amount of time! After class Kaitlyn and I went running in Hyde Park. It was beautiful! Somehow running becomes so much easier when its through trails along a pond and beautiful scenery. I definitely felt like I was in a movie. From there we went to the Museum of London then on to St. Paul's Cathedral. St. Paul's is gorgeous! Yes, we hiked a billion stairs to get to the very top, but it was worth it. We saw all of London from the bird's eye view, but I did come to the realization that I am scared of heights... especially when its really windy and I keep hearing about earthquakes. Don't worry I didn't die! But walking down spiral staircases sure made me dizzy!
