Hello from London!!!!!!

     So I decided that I would take the liberty of making the first post on our blog. Staley, Claire and I arrived at the BYU London Centre on wednesday night!!! We are here studying abroad for spring semester until June 16th. We have been looking forward to this trip for months now and it is UNREAL that we are finally here.  I decided that I wanted to come to London about three years ago when my friend Whitney came back from her study abroad here and told me how amazing it was. Ever since then, I've had a picture of Big Ben on my wall. And Staley called me a nerd when I told her this, but I seriously got chills when we walked out of the tube station yesterday and I got my first look at Big Ben in real life. Haha. yep I'm a nerd but seriously it was so cool.
     These first two days have been crazy busy. We've filled our days trying to figure out how to navigate the tube, taking 250 pictures on the first day (Claire), eating at delicious restaurants: waffles, gelato, nando's, etc., exploring, and getting to know all the awesome people living with us at the centre.
    Yay!!! We're here. It's already been so fun and its only the beginning.
Here are a few pictures...
