day 13 - free day

It's much too late. Really. Almost 2:30 am. But I refuse to keep putting off my blog writing, if I do, it'll never get done and then I will never catch up. I have a hard enough time remembering what happened today let alone last week...

Today was a free day. I slept in, made a wonderful breakfast, took a long shower... it was a relaxing and lovely morning. Then Tia, Mirielle and I went to Portobello road to check out the markets. Wow it was crowded. As in crazy crowded. It was a holiday today, too, which doesn't help with the masses. Imagine this... the Beatles came back from the dead to host one last concert, there's no limit of tickets... and admission is free. That's about how I felt on Portobello road :P The streets were lined with venders and filled with people. It was a sea of people. A massive sea of people. And there were so many vendors. We walked a long ways and didn't even make it half way. It was fun to see all the unique things that were being sold though. There was some pretty cool stuff. If you ever want to go antiquing, this is the place to be!

We left after we couldn't handle the crowd any longer and walked around in Hyde Park. I love that park, it's so big and pretty. It was a perfect day for a walk because it was so warm, 60's I think. The best day we've had since we've been here. We walked around a bit and found the Peter Pan statue and Tia made it a lovely tiara of flowers. And then she climbed a tree hunger games style. It was pretty legit.
Then we went home and had lunch and I accidently fell asleep on the couch while I was editing photos. Oops. I didn't do much after that. Just hung out and chatted, worked on the computer, did some homework. Not too exciting really. It was nice to have a relaxing day.

Tomorrow's my last day in London. I'm really sad about it. It's gone by too quick already. I really love London and I'm sad to leave (crazy excited for Paris, but sad to go). Who knows when I'll get another chance to come back to London. Hopefully sooner than later :)

This was one of the reasons I wanted to go to Portobello road. I now have a video of me singing this song while on Portobello road :)
