JUST MY LUCK that William and Kate return to Kensington Palace 24 hours after we tour it. Thank God I bought the official Westminster Abbey souvenir that is their wedding album. Yes, we also paid the $30 to tour the Abbey, which actually had the most intricate and mesmerizing stained glass ever.
Other than our self-led royal tour (Buckingham & Kensington Palace, Westminster, etc.) we rode on the London Eye (sorry I’m a tourist) and managed to get lost for hours on end. Let me tell you something about the pound. It’s a constant blood bath for any American’s wallet seeing £20=$34. But how can you put a price on hearing that accent?
The weather wasn’t killer, but then again when is it in London? Our tube ride (I’m such a local) was about an hour into the city every morning- so let’s all take a moment to thank the tube employees for waiting to strike until this week.
One of the guys we went with was determined this was Kensington Palace:

Currently attempting to finish my 20 page paper for the Diversity and Integration in Political Philosophy and International Management (yeah I don’t know either) before we train it to Milan tomorrow and fly to GREECE on Friday for 6 noches. Donkey riding anyone? Classes are starting to wind down meaning finals are too close for comfort, but that will be a battle for next week.
