First impressions of London (from Everett)

The trip has finally started, which is good because we were looking forward to it so much.. Nice to see Chantal again, i know it's only been six weeks, but i missed her.. :) The plane ride out was pretty damn shitty, especially the 1.5 hour layover in winnipeg during which i wasn't allowed out to smoke.. :( the 2 hour wait for our bags wasn't too hot either, but once we got in, it started to sink in.. Dinner was the spiciest damn tandoori mutton imaginable (which probably wasn't such a good idea at 8 O'clock on my first night - my anus was on fire this morning :p). Spent the day today wandering around for about five miles checking out all the big sights - westminister abbey, big ben, london bridge etc. and just soaking in the sights, sounds and smells (which aren't that great) of the city that started it all.... in Canada anyways..
Our hostel is nice and clean, with good, clean, warm showers, but there is a bar underneath that doesn't quiet down until about 4am.. good thing we had jet lag yesterday or it might have been a pain in the ass.. guess i'll have to hang out there until 4 so it doesn't bother me tonight.. :) if we do the pub crawl kalin wants to do tonight, it might not bother me anyhow.. also gonna go check out 'the clink' - the medieval jail that gave all other jails their names..
better go anyway, me or kalin will post again soon..
