The next few days were a blur of organisation and tears ( well not really but as we were heading into the last week of our trip things became very sad!)
Bob and Jill came back which was fantastic to see them and look at all their photos of Australia! But they were their busyselves so we left to do their stuff!
We went tha saw the Lion King Musical which was actually brilliant because on the day we wanted to see it we went to the box office and they said the musical was sold out and the best thing to do would be go to the actual theatre and see if they had any left over tickets. We headed over there, which was actually a long way, and when we asked at the box office there, they ALSO said they were sold out. Just as we were giving up all hope an elderly couple came striding out the door and handed us two tickets saying their two friends couldn't make it and that we could have these for free! What our luck! They were really good seats too! Right in the front and centre!
The musical itself was brillaint and I couldn't help but sing along to all the songs!
The next day we met up with Sally and Bunday again and also out other school friend, Josh. We hung around in Lesiter square for a while, before deciding to go to the London Tower! We had seen an ad for it in the Local Guide and it looked scary!
After a billion trains, because the railway was down for the day, we found our way to the London tower where the very first thing that happened was I had a fake head thrown at me. We later realised this place was an interactive 'scare show'. After waiting around for ages we lined up at the door and were shown into the 'room' where the show started! An actor came out that looked like a drunk bum and started saying he was the "doctor" of a labotory full of crazy people! It was great! We were shown around this maze of dark walls. People would jump out at us, screaming and wooping, grabbing us and touching us! It was pretty scary but funny at the same time!
We got through it in the end and everyone was sweating!
We then headed to see a comady show that night. It was in a dinky little hotel room, but was great all the same. There was those awkward acts that no one finds funny but you hear yourself laughing anyway to save the comedian to utter fail, but there was also a really good act! He would pick on the crowd and ripped absolutley everyone! It was great!
Laughed out we headed to our new fave place to eat " pizza Express" before catching the everylasting train back to Kingsdene.
The next ( and last) day in London for Josh, Sally and Bunday was great fun. We went back to the Camden Markets because Bunday and Josh hadn't been there and ended up finding a whole new market that was 20 times bigger and very cool! It was called the Camden Stable Market and had statues of horse and carriages everywhere. The stalls were mainly made up of antiques and collectble with a few vintage shops and the odd jewelry store. Most of the stuff wasn't my taste but it was very cool to wander around and we ended up spending most of the day there!
We stubled accross the hip new store inbetween the crumbly bag shop and the candlestick store that was a rave store. I had never been in one so didn't know what to expect. Think four levels underground full of fluro clothing and sex toys. There were stages where staff were dancing around and it was so big it could have been a club itself!
After all of this, everyone felt a little tired so we all decided to see a film. We ended up seeing " Paranormal Activity three" and is was no where near as scary as the other ones! I hardly flinched! We wanted dinner by this point so headed to a pub for some grub and drinks.
We had a few to many and before long it was time to go home. But not before we had a traditional stop off at Maccas where Tim got his Chicken Nuggets and Josh taught us the best trick ever. Chickent Nuggets and Mcflurry are good together!
