party at St.Christophers Village

Well it's 9:46am here in London and everyone is eating breakfast after what looks like a wild party in the bar lots of hung over looking people.Today is my first official day here so I'm definately getting out and taking photos of the big city as i also try to figure out where I'll go to next.I'm staying the St. Christopherss Village Hostel which is actually fairly nice was hard to find from the tube station though but i think that was my fault as I probably took the wrong escalator up  from the underground, once i found the right direction it wasn't too hard at that point.I've met several people from all over at this hostel so it's been cool so far.If you eat here at the restaurant you get 10% off your meals,drinks and a few other things,so I'm definately taking advantage of that.

I haven't decided if I'm going on the free walking tour of london or just poke around on my own the tour is 2-3 hours long so i may just go out on my own,there's lots to do and see where I'm at so it shouldn't be too difficult to find stuff.I did manage to get a picture of the party in the bar lastnight from the top of some stairs it was really crowded so i didn't stay long.I'm going to go eat then venture out so will report back later today til then have a great day and stay tuned!!! I'm back had fun running around parts of London then came back to put photos up and they were having trouble with net access but it looks like it's ok now, even though we have to pay to use it but it's fairly cheap so i don't mind a whole lot!!! i got some great pics of London bridge and the HMS Belfast a world war 2 era battle ship!!

ohh st. christophers! i love those hostels!! im staying at one of those when i first get to london but im just not sure which one. you should go to bath next!! its about an hour away by train and there is the roman baths there and then tons of tours to the stonehenge. the city itself is also really really pretty. thats all i can recommend cause thats the only two cities in england ive been to hehe but ive heard good things about oxford and nottingham.
