Do you see how blue that sky is??
The weather has been amazing in London this week - high 70's and pure sunlight all day long. I spent Wednesday walking all over London with some new acquaintances, a girl from California in my program and one from Sweden. We started at Trafalgar Square, saw the horses change guard outside the Cavalry Museum, walked through St. James's Park and saw the changing of the guard at Buckingham Palace, had ice cream and saw swans and people picking chestnuts in Hyde Park, and ended up in Kensington! A total of 3 miles!
Here's the route we took:
Apparently this is very strange weather for London (no kidding) but it's fantastic. The cafe we ate at was a cute French-style place with quiche and salads and huge lattes, Montparnasse in Kensington.
Afterward I made my way back to Covent Garden to meet a Japanese exchange student I found on a language exchange site -- it turns out we actually had a mutual friend on Facebook! It was so nice to have a long conversation in Japanese again for the first time in months. Plus this girl has been in London since April so she can give me a lot of tips!
