Today marked the end of my first week in London. It's crazy how fast the week flew by, but I guess that's to be expected when you're running around doing a million things, especially in those first few days.
I've done some pretty cool things in the past week, including seeing the houses of Parliament and the Eye both during the day and at night, walking along the Victoria Embankment down to St. Paul, crossing the Millennium Bridge over to Tate Modern, shopping on Oxford Street (several times!), spending the day in Regent's Park, seeing Queen Mary's gardens, going to the London Zoo, sitting on top of Primrose Hill, walking through Green Park, seeing Buckingham Palace, walking down Pall Mall, wandering through Covent Garden (and Seven Dials, a cool shopping district there) and Leicester Square and Trafalgar Square, sitting in the grass outside the huge main entrance to the National Gallery, exploring Bloomsbury, walking over to King's Cross/St. Pancras (and in turn, passing The Rocket, the old haunt of '09 study abroaders), seeing UCL's main quad for the first time, and shopping in Russell Square. I've had a really good first week!
Tomorrow is supposed to be yet another amazing day, so I plan to make the most of it! Who knows, it very well could be the last summery day we have here. I may just end up back in Regent's Park...I loved it there and can see myself packing a day bag and spending the majority of my day out there.
