Artwork outside my accommodation.
I made the mistake of wearing the pretty boots instead of the practical walking boots yesterday and boy did I regret it :S
After hobbling back from The British Museum Take Two (and I wasn’t done there, not by a long shot but I have to see some of the other stuff on my list), I went out for dinner and drinks with Cameron and his friends. We met at a pub called The Salisbury which was in walking distance of the Leicester Square tube.
Holy cow, that area was awesome! It was crowded and colourful and loud and it was musical adverts everywhere and it was exactly what I envisioned London to be. I did a lot of open mouthed staring and pointing and I will definitely be going back for another wander. Also there was MnM world???
We had a super filling dinner of delicious Chinese food and sake at Joy King Lau where I met Cameron’s hilarious and awesome friends and ate waaay too much.
We then headed for an Italian (or at least Italian-run?) bar/club in SoHo where the wait staff had amazing hair and they played a lot of 90s pop and Michael Jackson. It was pretty great despite me being a party pooper and leaving before 12. I ended up wandering around some more before I headed back, the whole place was significantly cooler than I could ever hope to be. :P
I feel like I only realised yesterday that there was so much to do and so little time to do it in! I like it here, it’s exciting.
