Fun day today. I got up and went for a long run throughout Regent's Park (where else). I found another new area, surprise surprise. I actually didn't get there because it is outside the regular boundaries of the park. I got confused. I will find it though. It's called primrose hill and their is a viewing point in it so maybe it actually has some slope to it (I need some hills).
Afterwards I worked on my budget while I waited for Dawn to return from her interview. As of right now I am right on target, actually a little under budget, so as long as I keep this up I should be in pretty good shape.
Once Dawn got back she and I went to meet Ellie and Leah at Tate Modern (they had gone to tea at the Orangery). Tate Modern is pretty awesome. Sorry I don't have any pictures. They say no cameras but I didn't realize until the end that they weren't enforcing that. I saw some pretty famous works including Monet's Water Lilies, a couple Jackson Pollocks, some Picassos (although not as impressive as the Guernica that I saw at the modern art museum in Madrid) and an Andy Warhol room (very appropriately wallpapered with the images of florescent yellow cow heads on a florescent pink background. I will be returning to this museum a few more times throughout this semester with my Contemporary Art in Britain class (which is sweet because the school pays our admission tithe special exhibits).
After the museum we walked across the Millennium Bridge (pedestrian only). It was very beautiful. There was a fantastic view of the bridge with St. Paul's Cathedral in the background, from Tate which I have included here and on facebook.
Dawn and I headed back to the flat and Ellie and Leah went off to see a play. Dawn and I had a relaxing evening of leftovers and tv.
Videochatted with Dad for awhile about miscellaneous stuff, and of course Chamonix.
Once Ellie and Leah came back we all hung out for awhile and had these delicious drinks of hard cider with strawberries in it. Quite delectable.
Now it is way past my bedtime. We have to get up at 9 tomorrow so we can get to Buckingham for the changing on the guard at 11. Then we are going inside the palace. I will be on the lookout for Shea sized castles.
