Saying bye to Chris
Today was our last day in London and it was a blast!! Unfortunately it was our last day with my friend Chris so after breakfast we walked him to the tube station so he could catch it to the proper train station. After that Melissa and I went back to Traflagar square again where we wrote some postcards and mailed them away. Then we went on a journey to find the Drury Lane theatre to get a picture for Lindsay (Melissa's sister) Well since we had walked that far we just kept going and going and eventually we walked our way to St. Pauls catherdal and today it was open!! We went inside and it was amazing! So beautiful! While we were in there we climbed the 434 stairs all the way to to top and we had an amazing view of the city.
St. Pauls cathedral
I'd even say it was a better view then from the London eye (except that you can't see the Parliament buildings) and it was for half the price! From St. Pauls we crossed the bridge to The Globe theatre. We never got to go inside the theatre but we did take some pictures outside of it and we saw the snazy gift shop haha. We had been walking for about 5 hours that day so we took the tube from the London Bridge station back to Piccadilly and then we got some dinner. Then on a whim when we were passing those theatre ticket places we found some really good cheap tickets to Lion King so we decided to buy them and go see the play and it was friggen awesome!! I loved it and our seats were pretty amazing. After that we just went back to the hostel, we had to be up earlyish the next day for our train to Bath! All in all London was an awesome time and I love the city so much!! Which is probably why I'm moving there in Jan. 2008....hehe :D
