I don't eat fish. Razz ah well..

I'm not sure what stores I will go to yet, London is quite expensive. But I am searching for a book that is not sold in the Netherlands, and even though I don't think I'll find it there Razz I will be looking for it. I'll also tell you all what souvenirs I bought when I'm back.

I have returned!

And I'll have to write a report about the trip, with photos, for school. So when that's done I'll post it here.

The book wasn't available there as well, instead I got a ivory ring, triop eggs (small, shrimp like animals that are older then the dinosaur. Their eggs can be stored for hundreds of years and will still be able to hatch when they come in contact with water.), and a poster about human anatomy (muscles, bones, arteries and intestines)

I had fun, and some of the things that we were obligated to do where quite amusing. But more about that later on.

Photos:


Just outside the hostel where we were staying.


Also just outside the hostel.


A 'work of art' that we had to gather information about in Tate Modern museum.






We were told to find graffiti art by Banksy, a famous local graffiti artist, it took us about one and a half hour to find this one. Everything else had been removed.


BBC studios (we were not allowd to make photos inside most of the building.)


I love these signs.

It was a lot of fun, the only thing I did not like was the horror hostel and the bus ride.

We arrived at the hostel in the evening, everyone went out to look at the city, some also to get drunk. Because everything was closed I got bored pretty soon, and went to the hostel to get some sleep.

The next day, I got up early, because the showers were not private and filthy, so if I got up before everyone else, I would be able to take a shower... The only problem with my geneous plan was, that once I was done with showering and getting dressed, there was nothing to do, so I was bored for a couple of hours.

Then we finally went to a museum, unfortunately we were only allowed to take pictures of the boring stuff, like that crack in the floor. Although a guide there managed to make even that interesting, and could also tell me a lot about England. And they had some really cool surrealistic paintings.

After that, I got lost... I had to search for a long time to get to the next assignment, which was a acting workshop. I don't enjoy standing up in front of my class and about 5 other classes to act... but some of the games we had to do as a group were fun.

Then we went searching for that Banksy thing. In it's self that assignment was a pain in the ass, but because everyone on the tour was having the same problem, it wasn't that bad. And we did get to see a pretty large part of London. (one that was filled with filthy streets, parking lots and rats)

I ate a sandwich (it's difficult to find a good meal in London) and went back to the hostel, and fell asleep.

The next day started with the BBC tour, we saw all kinds of huge studios with lots of equipment, the BBC news room, how weather programs are made, etc.

Then came the museum of science and technology, it wasn't very interesting, so I finished my assignment, bought some stuff from their gift shop (Triops) and ran away to lose the rest of my class. So I could go to some of the stores I still wanted to see. I then went to the largest bookstore in London, but even they could not give me the book I wanted. I did find another book, it was about how small animals function, organs, bones, muscle tissue... I would have bought it, but it was 50 pounds, and that’s just crazy.

So I left and went to a part of London, which was filled with antic shops, they had some really cool looking things. I bought a ring and went back to the mall near my hostel... we would leave in the evening, and I still had to eat something.

After walking around there for a hour or so, I ate spaghetti (from a microwave >_<). And went back to the hostel to wait for the bus. Thank Satan, more people I knew were there, because the bus was late and I had to wait for a really long time.

Then we went back.

It's a unique city, and there is a lot to see. You should really visit it sometime. The only advise I have, is don't be to cheap when you are selecting your hotel, London is expensive, so if you don't have to pay much to stay at a hotel, there will be something wrong with it.
