I got off at Baker street took the metro (here called for some strange reasons 'tube') and came to the hostel. Who knows RJ just a little bit - knows also that i couldn't find him there! He made me wait for him like half an hour:///
I was staying in front of the hostel looking left and right for him and Amy (who was traveling with RJ) then i saw them hahaha - I must have hugged RJ cuz it was the first time we saw each other but we know for some 3 months already - really funny story hahaha.
Then we checked-in left our stuff and headed to the London Eye where we were supposed to meet other TBs like Wayne, Matt, another Matt, Audrey, Mark and some others. Of course we couldn't find them but finally we did. Drank a beer and played some bowling (RJ - still remember? U lost with Matt against me and Amy hahahaha) [This was the first time i won - one down thousend to come haahha KUMPEL - ALAM MO NA TAMA AKO!!!!!]
Then we all went by metro to Covent Garden for lunch. At the Big Ben we lost the whole group - we even didn't know where we were going - just following them and at a certain moment we didn't see them - well it was cuz we talked and took pictures i guess.
We ate, drank, talked (since they all were english speaking the 'words-river was a bit too fast for me but more or less i got by - that's a small lie, cuz in fact it was more like 'less' than 'more' ;) do u get my point? hahaha
From central London we got to Camden Town (on the way to the metro station we got lost again - RJ had to make another call to Matt - he would be charged for all those calls more than for the food there hahahahaha - SAYANG RJ!- then they found us. Camden Town - the strange and cool place with 'alternative milieu' along the main street. We went to a pub for drinking, but our GREAT THREE went back - we were not like 'lasingero' - well not really (for meaning of the word 'lasingero' look in tagalog dictionary - spanish one will help u as well;) - come on! look! don't be THAT lazy - it's only one word and u will find it on-line!!!) hahaha.
In the evening we wanted to see some night life and the 'night face' of the city - headed to London Tower and Tower Bridge - unfortunately the wether was like 'just london weather' which u should know - rain, rain, rain (tagalog: ----> ulan) haaha
It was wet and cold (hm... i new it won't be the 'italian hot' but come on, it was summer - i thought i didn't have to bring warm clothes - and i was wrong (for the first time i guess haahah - RJ shut up! hahaa) - now i regret to have in my suitcase just t-shirts and no jumper:///
Our next 'place to see' was this Swiss Tower - we called it 'egg-shape-building' which looks really like painted easter-egg:))) We saw it but couldn't find the way to it, cuz we were too lazy and maybe tired to look at the map (hm.. more lazy i guess).
And here i have some 'white holes' in my memory - what did we do next? Probably just went back to our place...
As we arrived back to the hostel - there was a big party in the bar downstairs - lucky we - our rooms were far away from this noisy place hahah (yeah, i know we should be lucky and go to tis party - so we are maybe getting old? hehe)
I came into my room and - there was a party as well:// a spanish girl asked if i wanted to sleep - well YES! and they promised to go away in 5 minutes or so (yep, sure! go figure! hahaha) i took the shower prepared for bed and they were still there scriming, talking loudly - and after an hour they were gone - i thought: THANK GOD i can rest now - but the life isn't that easy and nice - after a while - i was almost sleeping - u know this is the best moment u are almost inconcious and u know u will sleep so sweety in a minute - at this moment two freaky girls from - dunno where (their tounge sounded like romanian) - knocked at the door - they didn't take their room keys, i opened them and didn't bother myselfe by being nice - i just said they better take the keys! (and in my mind i added like Rene from the TV show "Allo, allo" 'you stupid women' hahahaa) but then came another ppl switched on lights and didn't even tryed to talk silently.
This night was horrible - i maybe slept 3 hours, maybe less...
