I keep meeting more and more londoners from all over the world, each one pretty much amazing-i love the diversity here. i've made friends with several guys from scotland, all fun with these amazing accents and crazy stories. last friday this travel company shoestring threw this crazy amazing free themed party with free alcohol and good music-met some (gorgeous) twins and their friends from scotland, and the four of us girls went to an afterparty at their flat. i believe they made fun of how us californians say EVERYTHING but its all good we had fun. Alex got ridiculously drunk and needed to hug the toilet, if you catch my drift. Sooo the Scots decided it would be a fantastic idea (rather drunk themselves) to bring in one of the queen sized, (yeah you heard me right) mattresses into the smallish bathroom so she could sleep in there.
saturday was waitangi day, which is basically new zealand day. the obvious way to spend our day was to tag along on their pub crawl across the city, where thousands of aussies and kiwis get trashed and 'tube surf' to various pubs off the circle line on the tube, which basically means you have hundreds of drunks falling on each other while trying to ride one of the shakiest lines in london, not holding onto anything.
Chinese New Years was fantastic as well, with a visit to our new favorite restaurant, Four Seasons. Everywhere we looked in the district there were scrumptious treats and Chinese crafts and noise makers. I got a bit worried at the sight of a fireworks show put on in the middle of the square, which wouldn't have been a problem in my mind, had it not been for the trees towering directly ahead. I guess they know what they're doing?
