I've seen your flag on the Marble Arch...
So, I have been living here in England for 2 weeks now today. It has been very exciting, and I have of course gone to London and seen the sites that everyone knows about: Big Ben (St. Stephen's Tower), Houses of Parliament, Buckingham Palace, the London Eye (which we actually rode), blah blah blah. The pubs around Kingston are fun, and I actually have liked them better than the ones in London. Anyway, it has been interesting adjusting. I went grocery shopping today and bought French brie cheese, which did not taste the same as it did at home. I did, however, try a crumpet for the first time and liked it very much. I went to the Tate Modern yesterday and it was absolutely fantastic. Seeing Monet's Waterlilies was seriously like a dream come true. I was in awe of his vision and talent. It was great to see works that I learned about in classes at home by artists such is Lichtenstein, Ernst, Mondrian, and many many more. My classes are turning out to be very interesting, also. I really like the material.
Anyway, that's enough for now.
Oh, and the first picture is of the Marble Arch, which I stumbled upon accidentally, but was in awe of.
