Driving here is crazy...the roads are so narrow in some places that 2 cars can't fit across which is kinda scary because the roads are really windy and hilly. Plus it feels weird to be driving on the wrong side of the road.
Tomorrow we're off to do a tour of the Manchester United Stadium which Gareth is super excited for. I'm hoping to buy a warmer sweater so I don't freeze.
So we're in England staying at Gareth's cousin's house (his family is really nice). It's -2 C and its so cold here I'm freezing. The moist air seems to penetrate everything- its like its -20 C. Our flight was pretty awesome...only 43 people on the entire plane and there was approx. 300 seats in the plane. There was 11 seats across (4 seats in the middle) so we each got a row of middle seats to our selves to lay down. Each stewartist had to serve 5-6 people...it was awesome. The only bad thing was we woke up at 7:30am on wed., the plane left Calgary at 1pm and arrived 8 hrs later in Manchester, England at about 5am Thurs. Gareth and I didn't sleep at all on the plane and only had a 2 hr nap at 1pm. We were pretty tired (barely could stay awake at about 11am) but we've both have been consuming a lot of caffience and i'm feeling pretty good. Pretty much have been up for 32hrs (with a 2 hr sleep).
