Hi all So much to tell you....So as I woke up the morning of the 15th I expected to finish packing and go to the airport. As I checked over my things I noticed my bag passport was missing. It seems that I had Forgotten to take it out of the copy machine at kinkos and someone had taken it. AHHHH ADAM!!!! I rushed to the passport office where the lady laughed at me and said that my only chance was to go to San Francisco and plead my case. My flight was at 430pm and it was now 10 am...My parents even went as far as to call Barbara Boxer's office ,but they were no help. Long story short I got the office waited in line., and had my passport in hand by 230. Wow wow...I got to London the next morning and met Jessica and Lauren at the Generator Hostel. It was so easy to get there I didn't even have to change trains. We went directly to Buckinham palace, Westminster Abbey, and Parliment, after that we went to Picadilly and bought tickets to a play that Kevin Spacey is in, "Philadelphia Story" The play was great even though
I kept nodding off...The highlight of the nigt was meeting Kevin Spacey...I don't really remember what I said but I think it was something like "I really enjoyed the show"...whatever...I was so star struck I even forgot to ask for a picture...so my only proof is that the girls saw it... The next day we went to the Tate Modern and then a concert with MIchael Franti and Spearhead...Check them out if you haven't heard of them Sort of ragaey rock...The girls left the next morning and I've been sort of bumbing around the city since then...Lloyd gets here tomorrow...woohoo!!!...More to come...It's raining in London...what a surprise huh? ! I also started reading Charles Dickens "David Copperfield" It's not bad....plus i got it for £1..
Doner Kebab is amazing..I'd eat it everyday if I could
Impressionist art is my favorite. I saw a Monet Exhibit. Renoir isn't bad either
The Tube is Amazing we should have one in SF.
I'd live in London...except for the fact that everyone that looks at my credit card asks me if Adam London is my last name...One guy even asked me why I was named it and when I
"You can bomb the world to pieces but you can't bomb it into peace"
said I got it on Ellis Island he didn't know what that was...
I want an English Accent...or Italian...or french (but masculine french)
I walked so much yesterday that my whole body hurt today...
