Hello All,

We have landed here in Europe London more specifically. And well the adventure has already started. SO here' sthe deal. Mom's you told us to only tell you things after they happened so we feel you will enjoy reading this story on the blog. We landed safe and sound after our over night flight little tired but still excited and eager to start this adventure. We run to immigraton passports in hands and ready to start our adventure and well tha'ts when it almost ended. The immigration officers almost didn't let us into the country. In none of the books that we read do they tell you to book a return ticket or they might not let you in to their country. Ooops!!! They were like why would let two girls into our country that don't know when they are leaving, don't have alot of cash on them and don't know where they are staying. SO we just kept smiling and rambling....telling them about how we had to leave when our insurance was up and that we aren't just doing their country we are traveling everywhere and blah blah blah. They discussed amongst themselves and stamped our passports said you can come in but when you leave don't come back unless it's to fly home. Good to know...so ya we are doing all the UK now and then if we return it will only be to come home....AMAZING!!!!!

So our week began in London with staying at a hostel near St. Paul's Cathedral. We went to a service on Sunday it was great. Then we woke up on Monday to real London weather, POURING rain. So we put on our extremely fashionable ponchos and hit the town. We went to Buckingham's palace where a London marathon was going on. We went and saw Avenure Q that night, 2nd row last minutre seats. It rocked! The next day we road on the double decker bus, saw the changing of guards, Big Ben, House of Parliament, Globe Theatre, London Bridge, London Eye, and the London Tower. \for dinner we treated ourselves to real British fish and chips. After dinner we went and saw Midsummer Night's Dream at the oroginal globe theare. We payed for the peasant seats which means we stood the whole show with our chins on the stage. Actor interacted with us the whole show Robby almost got punched int he face and she did get cookie crumbs in her eye. Totally worth the 5 pounds!

So now I think we are on Wednesday that's when we went and hung out with my friend Roy's brother Rafi. He took us our for a night on the town as a locals. In other words we did our own mini English pub crawl. Saw some bands and went to the pub where punk rock originated. Had a real London beer which for the record they serve warm. BLAH! But still a pint's a pint.

So London did us well, time to move on........
