Mariel hanging around
My cousin and I were exhausted, her flight from Bahrain arrived and 7am and she only took a short nap before meeting me at the airport. So needless to say, after the tube rides, our meal, and more tube/train rides oh and a massive walk up a hill, we were dead tired! So waiting on Garry, we rested in his livingroom before we trekked out once again.
We continued up the hill to a local bar. It was pretty empty, but not surprising since it was so early, I think 5pm or should I say 17:00. We have a drink and just chat it up, snapping pics and just having a laugh. Garry then takes us to a cute bar where there were more people around, the venue itself was a bit bigger too and there we met some of his friends. They were very funny and quite the English characters.
Another bar and more drinks
Since we were taking the tube back to the hotel, we needed to leave by a certain time or else we'd been stuck. We left close to 11 or 23:00 and took the train back to Victoria station. Once at Victoria, we took 2 tubes back to the hotel. Mariel and I were exhausted. We could barely stay awake during the tube ride back... but being the silly girls that we are, once we got back tot he hotel (around 1), we girlishy laughed up the fact that after 20 years and last seeing each other in the Philippines, we end up in London
together! Around 2:30 we begin to wind down and reality hit us when we looked at the time and thought we had to be up by 7 again. Mariel had to work on a Gulf Air flight leaving that morning and she had to leave at 8.
