Anyway, I continued to talk to Robbie and the two girls from Chicago (Jackie and Anna) for quite a while. Jackie really wanted to go out to a club but her travel partner, Anna, did not.
We went to a nearby grocery store to get a few drinks and I decided to get a couple snacks as well. Still in awe of the Walkerâs chip flavors, I went straight to the chip aisle. I was in shock. These Brits have the weirdest chips.
The chips were a pretty big hit back at the hostel and we offered them to whom ever wanted to try them. We continued to hang out there until we realized it was 11pm and Jackie was anxious to go out and dance. So me, Jackie, Antoine, Robbie, and Marco (the mate from South Africa) began the walk to Victoria station to catch the tube. Back to Picadilly we went and this time to Club Oxygen. The place wasnât nearly as large as On Anon but it was still very crowded and very fun. We all danced the night away and met some other people from London and danced with them. I ran into a few drunks from Canada and decided to mess with their heads a little and told them I was from Canada also. I started using the Midwestern Canadian accent and told them I was from Winnipeg. They loved it.
Around 2am, we were completely worn out and began the walk back to the hostel. The other three didnât believe Robbie and I when we said we knew where we were going and had done the walk the night before. Before long, we were in a quiet corner in a residential area. Whoops. Luckily I realized my mistake and we were back on course and back to the hostel in no time.
I woke up around 8:30am this morning and had breakfast. It was a simple breakfast of cornflakes and toast, but it hit the spot. Check out was simple and I was on my way back to Victoria to catch my bus. I am currently typing this as I ride the bus to the airport. Quick rant to London: Donât call your airport âLondon Stansted Airportâ. It is nowhere near London. It âs a two hour bus ride to get there. In Virginia, it would be like calling Richmondâs airport âVirginia Beach/Richmond Airportâ, or for those of you reading in ND/MN, the âFargo/Minneapolis/St. Paul Airportâ.
And I saw a Smart car with flames painted on it this morning. Pretty intense.
