Well I arrived on Wednesday. I bounded off the plane and realized holy f*&% it is hot here! It was 24, and felt like 30 to me in my wool coat. So after some creative repacking, I boarded the tube with a large suitcase, backpack and shoulder bag. I did pretty well, considering my big suitcase weighed 45 lbs. I made it to Victoria station and found Mandy's hotel without any trouble. I was able to stash my things at the front desk where she works while she finished work. I wandered around outside Buckingham Palace and the beautiful park there. It was so lush and green.
I also went into Buckingham Cathedral, which is beautiful. I took a picture, above right. It really moved me. It is so big and the artwork is amazing. I even lit a candle and said a little prayer. I sat for a bit and it was so calming and peaceful, I will definately be back.
Then, Mandy finished work and we shared a cappucino at her hotel bar along with her friend Lonica. The coffee was definatley what I needed! I perked up a bit and we went out to dinner at Nanos. It is a cool little place that has bbq chicken spanish/mexican style with beer and wine. After chicken and wine i felt wasted. So off we went to grab my luggage and head on the tube again to Mandy's. Mandy's flat is so nice and is so awesome of her to let me crash on the floor!
