We left Myrtle Beach on Thursday after spending four nights there. It was very nice, with white sandy beaches! Took the greyhound to Raleigh which is the state capital of North Carolina. The bus took around 5 hours but we had to change three times so the actual journey time was only around 3 and a half. Went to their main shopping mall on Friday where we both spent quite a bit of money on clothes like Abercrombie, Hollister and American Eagle as it was so much cheaper than back at home. Yesterday we took a cab to downtown where we went to the City Museum and explored all of the history. City is not very big and kind of strange, one street will be very old and historic with lots of statues and then another will be very modern with fountains and big glass buildings. Decided to get a bus back to our hotel......what a bad idea that was!! Although it cost $1 instead of a $15 taxi, it was like waiting in Brixton! Some lady came up to Sarah saying she loved her bracelets and did she want to buy any of hers for $10!! I have to say, her bracelets were the kind you buy a 5 year old from Walmart! So we quickly moved away from her and jumped on the bus.
Everyone loves our accent and just wants us to keep talking. One waitress was so shocked as she said Sarah looked like a North Carolina girl! At the local fair a guy was predicting peoples ages and you got a big cuddly toy if he was wrong. I decided to have a go as my beard always fools everyone........he predicted i was.......26!!! Nice cuddly rose i got for Sarah :)!!
So today its our last day here and tomorrow we have a 6 hour bus journey to Washington. Booked a nice 4* hotel which is three stars better than we have been using so far. So im hoping no woodlouse and stains in the bathroom and towels that actually fit around your waist!! Its in the centre of the City and only 4 blocks from the Whitehouse so it will be nice to walk around everywhere rather than being far out from the main attractions.
Hope everyone is ok and not missing us too much. We will be home a week on Friday! Cant believe its only that long to go.
Much love from both of us
