After a day of moving through the slow jelly air of jet lag, and oppressed by the flat, grey, dreary, windy, drizzly skies of London (there’s a reason why Melbourne’s weather is compared to London’s; it’s quite clear to me now)… I woke this morning semi-refreshed and ready to go… sort of. It wasn’t looking too promising today either, so I got myself a local number (+44 7804 952218) So I did the big tourist thing today, and checked out London… and it’s one big ol’ city.
Impression A: Old
Impression B: Big
Impression C: Rich-looking
Impression D: Lively (but only during the day, really)
Impression E: filled with gold-tipped monuments.
Impression F: expensive *winces*
… And that’s just from riding around on a tourist bus and a little bit of walking. I’d cover more, but my time is running out.
(p.s. I’ll get photos up when I find a ‘net cafe that lets me connect USB sticks, or perhaps at the in-class training when that starts in a week or so).
