Newspapers as umbrellas and fast-walking people.

HOLY man, London's freaking huge. Huge isn't even the word! So much to learn even about how to BE in London. But I've got the tube under control, got the fast walk going, if only I packed a business suit in my backpack I'd fit right in! The amount of tourists in this city is unbelievable, like I sort of forgot about all the tourists that come to Europe, until I got here they are just EVERYWHERE. But it's all good!

No pictures on this post, by the way, I'm on Duncans computer which is where I'm staying out in Woking. Woking is super cute! Very posh neighbourhood, though Duncan wouldn't admit it. Actually, at 90,000 people it's a bit bigger than a neighborhood! Fabulous shopping center literally 5 minutes walk away from his place, and Duncan offered to bring home half a suitcase for me, which I'm fully taking him up on! I bought really cute stuff yesterday, as well as a really nice work dress, jacket, and 2 pairs of beautiful, non-leather shoes. Spent some money, but totally worth it!

Yesterday afternoon, by the time I finished shopping, I hopped on the train/tube and went to Shakespear's Globe Theater and a tour. The tour was about half a pound a minute, lasting only about 20 minutes, but really informative, and you get to go inside and snap pictures of the vacant Globe theater. I tried t get tickets for the next day's performance, and the girl almost laughed at me, as they're sold out for 3 weeks, and all of Romeo and Juliet's shows are sold out until October. After that I made my way over to Duncans, cardigan over my head as an umbrella, and we headed back to woking and got some dinner at a pub that had curry night. It was delicious! Today I have a massive day planned, and if I get through it all on time and on the tube it will be a miracle!
