Claire here.Making another transfer in the train station
It was a good day. We had waffles.
I sat next to a nice little French child on the tube today who was playing with a spin wheel. He wouldn't speak to me but he shyly kept looking up at me and smiling. We also saw an adorable little boy wearing a peacoat and carrying a teddy bear pouting in Hyde Park today.
I LOVE BRITISH CHILDREN!!!!
We went to Borough Market today and we will definitely be back again next saturday. They sell ostrich burgers there. I thought ostriches were near extinct. Clearly they are not if they are cooking them for people to eat in London? Or maybe there is just a superfluous amount in this country.
Either way- I don't trust meat from animals that I have only seen in cartoons.
Staley, Megan, Jess and I went for a great run in Hyde Park today (see Bop's remarks below) and it was a great start to the day! We showered, washed and fluffed then headed over to Borough Market. We got a little mixed up on the tube on the way over there, but it is always an adventure! I actually secretly kind of like getting lost here. We always discover fun things when we do. And I can't even complain about getting lost because I don't help with the navigation one bit. Usually I just scamper off and take pictures or look at my British coins and try to memorize which is which. Staley is a great navigator and has been a fearless leader, along with Jillian and Tiffany.
Later we went to the National Gallery where we each found our paintings for our Mythology class and looked around for a bit. I fell in love with a painting of Venice by Canaletto. Afterwards it was pouring rain so we got to try out our umbrellas for the first time! I find my height an advantage when dodging people while carrying an umbrella. The umbrella usually goes over their head rather than in their eye.
Borough Market with my fair ladies!
