This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my travels. This full post can be found here.
I’ve come to the conclusion that one week in a big city as a tourist is too much. My feet hurt like never before after all this walking and walking and walking. It’s gonna be so nice to come home where I can sit down all day!
Today we took the Tube to Liverpool Street where we went to a market that is there every third Saturday of the month. It was big and so many stalls. It was hand crafted things. I bought a bracelet and a tiny carrot cake cupcake. We had lunch at Wagamama and since my stomach is all fucked up I only had a side order as my main dish. Deep fried chicken pieces. It was good and lagom.
We then went to Covent Garden where we first stopped at a Starbucks to rest our poor feet. Then we took a look inside, watched a couple of live performancers and decided then to walk home. On the way we stopped in a few shops and saw Trafalgar Square where Duke Nelson stands (the guy who defeated Napoleon at Waterloo).
We then went through St. James’ Park which was beautiful today as well. Tons of squirrels running around and there were also a swan with five babies.
We got home at 8pm, and soon we will eat a home cooked dinner. I might study some after, but I doubt it. I am too tired… Tomorrow will be a slow day, so I will do some then, and on Monday before the flight leaves in the evening. I am a bit stressed about the test now actually. We still have a lot of things to do on the thesis and at the same time I need to study for the test. I think the thesis will be prioritized. The test is redoable, the thesis not.
