. Next we journeyed to see the Home of the Prime Minister (10 Downing Street) and from there we went to the war rooms of Churchill - one of my favorite museums we visited on the last trip to London. It was nice to visit London for such a short but eventful day trip - its great to be so close so I can pop on the train and be in Victoria station in 30 minutes.
Classes start tomorrow, Holy Cross still isn't being clear if they are accepting the classes that Sussex has put me in for the semester - I am currently taking International Political Economy, Media and Politics, Indian Civil Disobediance and British Political History. Unfortunately, I know this will most likely all change once Holy Cross says they won't take these credits and I'll have to figure out a whole new schedule of classes - blah!
Hope everything is going well in the states!
Yesterday, I went to London for the day ( about a 30 minute ride away if there isn't any traffic). It was a really nice day, only rained a few times for minutes at most. We had a bus tour of the city, after the tour we were dropped off to explore the city on foot. The girls I went there with from Holy Cross had never been to London before so we went sight seeing - first, we walked from Trafagular Square to the London Eye. The girls and the other people we were with thought we were going to be able to go on the London Eye - they quickly realized that the 3 hour wait for tickets wasn't worth it! We are going to buy tickets ahead of time online before our next visit for this very popular Ferris wheel. We walked along the Thames at high tide to Parliament and then to Westminister Abbey. The Abbey closed two minutes before we got there - bad timing - so now we have two touristy reasons to return to London very soon. We walked down Parliament square to Buckingham Palace and ventured in the park there for a bit after everyone took pictures of the castle and the famous guards
