Cheers-A few days back
23.05.2010 - 24.05.2010
London. Is. So. Cool.
Granted, all we’ve learned is to navigate the Tube (the metro) and cheat our way onto the Night Bus without a ticket. Just flash your tube pass and smile, the tickets look similar and no one really cares at odd hours of the night. After arriving in London we oriented ourselves to our new city and proceeded out into town for a bite to eat. We found some cheap noodles at a stand in the center of town and around half ten headed to Zoo Club, where we had scored some VIP passes. We had a free shot on the House and then the dancing started. The only good thing about traveling in a group of fifty is that we never need to look for the party-we bring the party to whichever club we choose. So we took it upon ourselves to start clearing out tables and creating a dance floor. Sunday night has never been so good to me.
The locals are brilliant. Very friendly, very hip. We chatted up everyone we ran into and it was honestly the time of my life. At one point we were outside the bar cooling off and a few men approached us and we shot the breeze for a bit. They asked where I was from, and naturally being the ass that I am, I decided to make them guess. Um. They were an entire continent off. Apparently I pull off Essex to drunk British men, but hey, I’ll take what I can get.
A few nights ago I was informed that Alaska was not part of the states. Granted, the boy was slinging sly pickup lines left and right, but he said, and I quote, “Alaska is off by itself being an individual. You’re an individual.”
In the works for today we have a ‘hop on hop off’ bus tour, as well as a cruise pass. Our tour guide gave us the tickets we need and is letting us loose into the streets of London. Tonight is Indian food and a Jack the Ripper night tour.
I’m thinking tonight should be a quiet night for me.
