underground tunnel going under the river
Today was the day we headed off to Grenwich (correct spelling?) where the line that divides the eath in half is (not the equator). so we took the tube to canary wharf station then transfered to another line. it was a pretty good trip and it wasnt crowded so it was nice. the station terminated on the other side of the river to where we were headed so we had to go to this tunnel that runs underneath the river which was awesome. the tunnel didnt smell like piss or anything, it was actually pretty clean and free of graffiti. when we caught the elevator at the end of the tunnel we saw that there were cameras everywhere which explains it all.. so on the other side of the river was this mini ferriswheel kinda like the eye in london.. then this pretty sweet building which i was later told to be a naval academy by jegs although im still not sure about that.
amy jegs and me
. we went into some of the buildings which had some great art on the walls that used the technique trompe liol? which means to fool the eye! (i still got it!) haha any ways the painting are cool.. then we had to find the prime meridian which divides the earth from eastern and western hemisphere. it was all the way on top of this hill through a park. the park was awesome and it was a great day for just sleeping in the park and just relaxing.. we walked up the hill took some pictures and took pictures at the prime meridian.. then we went into another building where there was an astronomy exhibit thing. that was also cool.. we had lunch there and decided to head back down to the park.. we find a nice dry spot in the park and took a nap.
that thing is hot
after our nap we decided to walk to the station but not before stopping by some shops for amys souvenirs. then off to oxford street for more souvenir shopping.. i think we stopped by a borders also which was good.. then matt called and we stopped at pret a manger to meet him. he suggested we go to top shop for something amy wanted then it started raining hard then hailing.. after it stoped raining and amy got whatever it is she got.. we went to a pub and ate dinner and talked.. then back to the hostel where i think me and jegs played some cards.. i taught him pusoy dos the previous nights and i was kicking his ass... he couldnt win! hahah
Also.. we mightve gone to that posh place with Harrods and Kensington park or knightsbridge... i think we visited that telecom tower... had some kebabs?? and tried to look for a filipino store?? my memory is shot.. help me out jegs.
