So, yesterday I told you all that we were thinking about going to Biarritz earlier (i.e. being in Paris a shorter amount of time). I called the company today and after being on hold for at least TWENTY MINUTES the lady told me it would cost some extra, so I asked the rest of the group
. We weren't so thrilled with spending more so I told the lady no thanks and hung up. But then we talked about it some more and decided that we wanted to do it. So I called the company back and was yet again on hold for nearly TWENTY MINUTES before talking to a person. She told me there was a train leaving Paris on Saturday at 3:45pm, arriving in Biarritz at 9pm. I agreed to this and paid for it and she was about to tell me the tracking number when... the line went dead. Extremely frustrated, I called back and after about 10 minutes on hold the line WENT DEAD AGAIN! I called back and after another TWENTY MINUTES finally made our plans finalized! We will now be in Paris from Tuesday evening to Saturday afternoon and then in Biarritz from the 17th (Saturday night) to the 27th! This means we will be able to take advantage of the beach, the Pyrenees and Spain! :D
Anyway, tonight we went to see Sister Act! Adora and I were particularly excited about this! It certainly met expectations! In fact, it was excellent! Although I missed Whoopi as the lead, it was still amazing! The supporting cast were especially fantastic. We had a very good time laughing and clapping and screaming! In fact, right now as we start to close our day, we are listening to the soundtrack, which Adora bought but we are all downloading! I'm sure many of you will hear it when we return and play it! :D
Anyway, as you all know, tomorrow we leave for Paris! I do not know whether we have internet there or in Biarritz, but in Paris we will try and find an internet cafe and in Biarritz I'm sure we will too. Some how you will hear from us, do not worry! :)
Today was another late start day, but when we finally got up we got the 73 bus to Angel Station and then grabbed the Northern line to Camden Town. Camden Town is known for being the punk/hippy market area of London, for example last time I was there, my friend bought steel-toed boots. But Camden Town has really prepped/pop-cultured/classed up in the past years. Some of the stalls had the same dresses we'd seen in Spitalfields. We wandered around, picking up a few gifts (okay I picked up a few gifts) and taking in the sights. In a section of food stalls there was seating for the people getting food and the seats were actually the backs of motorcycles/scooters. After getting our fill of the area we headed back home and had three hours to kill before having to go out again to see Sister Act!
