Today was my only completely free, totally unscheduled, and absolute alone day during the whole of my GSE trip. And let me say: the freedom felt nice.
Unfortunately, spending a day alone is synonomous with spending a day lost beyond belief. I was armed with maps and two weeks of London experience, but still managed to turn myself in circles.
Trying to find the National Gallery, I ended up in SoHo. Looking for the British Museum, I wound up in Trafalgar Square.
I fought through insane crowds before realizing I was stuck in the hell of Oxford Street, wandered around Borough Market twice because I wasn’t sure where the food stalls ended, and walked back and forth across the Thames a zillion times, not sure where I was going or even where I wanted to be going.
I’ve decided I need a GPS (excuse me, SatNav) chip installed in my brain.
But on the plus side, I finally got the camera / computer working! Here are a few photos from the past week.
PS: I’m hiding in the corner of a McDonalds, stealing their free WiFi. How American of me.
