We fell upon an event in Trafalgar Square (not unlikely) for what was apparently â€śAfrica Day.â€ť Lots of music and speakers, booths selling food and trinkets... what a great city London is to have such frequent cultural celebrations.
My friends and I went our separate ways and I went to see a show alone again; this time it was an Edward Albee play called, The Lady from Dubuque. It was showing in the Theatre Royal Haymarket. Dame Maggie Smith was in it! She was so incredible.
It was a really great show. In Albee fashion it was philosophically provoking. And, the theatre was particularly classy.
After the show, caught the tube and a London Lite and met up with everyone back at home for another night at Flat 50 to enjoy our last few nights hanging out.
Today was my friend Alexâ€™s birthday (from home), so I had to make an escape onto the balcony to give him a birthday call. We talked about the new apartment I was to move into with him and a few other guys when I returned. It was so, so weird to talk about things back in Irvine, and being hurdled into that mindset for a few moments after being out of it for so long. Itâ€™s hard to imagine going back so soon...
