Weekend Trips

The weekend is winding down (even though I don’t have class tomorrow) so here is what I did yesterday and today.

Yesterday we took a boat down the Thames River to Greenwich. On the boat we learned that a waterfront apartment costs about 500,000 to 8 million pounds depending on where it is. Life goals.

We also got to see some of the oldest pubs and buildings on the river and where Oliver Twist was filmed.

Once at Greenwich we walked around the little markets and towns, got food, and made our way to the Royal observatory, which is situated on probably the only hill in London.

I got to touch a 4.5 million year old meteorite. That was pretty cool. We didn’t get to stand on the line for the Prime Meridian, but we are pretty sure we did at some point in our visit even if there wasn’t a mark on the ground saying so.

Today we went to Liverpool street and walked around the markets there. There was so much street food and little shops. It reminded me of the saturday markets in Portland.

I ate a Pad Thai omelet for lunch and bought some tea (cause England). And now I am avoiding doing my homework. Woot!
