From Paris to London

After our delicious English breakfast, we took a bus tour of the entire city. A few highlights from the weekend were eating dinner at the Texas Embassy, which I don’t recommend. They took forever because of “problems in the kitchen,” which we had to find out after waiting for our food and harassing another waiter.

We also went to the changing of the guards and the Royal Ballet. Our last stop before coming back was to Platform 9 3/4 (Harry Potter, anyone?).

I am so glad that we took our little weekend trip. And our study abroad trip is a little more than halfway done!
