After Notting Hill, we headed on the tube to Covent Garden Market. The vibe was very different; Covent Garden was "hipper" and had less antiques than Notting Hill. We walked around for a while, poking in and out of shops. We stopped in Joules because Katie wanted a pair of zip-up wellies, but the store had sold one 6 and one 7 of a pair to someone the day before by accident
For lunch, we stopped at a crepe stand in the market and ate on the go. On Picadilly Circus, there was a giant souvenir store that we stopped in to pick up some things for people back home. When we had checked out, Corinne and I headed back to the Goodenough Club to do some laundry (I was in desperate need for some clean pants). The laundry room was pretty scary. It was located in the basement of Goodenough College, and the washers were from circa-1973. During the spin cycle, it sounded like something was trying to escape. It was also pretty busy. College students were using it, and even though I had only one washer that I was using, one couple hovered over me until my washer was finished. It was more than a little rude.
We relaxed for the rest of the afternoon until we (Corinne, Colleen, Katie, and I) went to dinner at Pizza Express. It was pretty long; the service was slow, but we were enjoying just sitting around. Dessert was 20 pence because of a promotion, so we split both types of "dough balls." The snowballs (which came with a cream cheese icing) were much better than the Nutella dough balls. After dinner, we spent a quiet night in the room watching Bridget Jones's Diary on the tele.
