I just realized that it is 07/07 today. Four years ago the London tube was bombed by terrorists. Today they unveiled a memorial in Hyde Park. I'm gonna go there this weekend because I still remember that day very clearly. It's one of those days of which you will always remember what you did. I remember that it was a hot and sunny day, beautiful weather actually and it was already summer holiday then and I had my first driving lesson on the motorway. I watched TV all day to be updated about what was going on in London. However, I feel and have always felt save on the Tube and today was just as any other day. Although people were not as chatty as on the other days.
Besides this, I had my first day in the restaurant, of course. It was better than I thought, because I don't really have the hang on F&B. But my colleagues are really nice and take time to explain and talk to me. But my first action was doomed to fail....I dropped a whole bunch of cutlery...of course. 6 weeks at the Quellenhof and nothing ever happened but on my first day here it had to :D Besides that everything was fine, I also helped a bit in Banqueting and saw the big boss, the owner of the Apex chain....in his sportswear...don't think that Mr. Marriott ever wears such things, he'd even go to bed in his suit.
It rained all day but haha! I was prepaired with my new umbrella. Simple black one, which made me a bit more invisble on my way to work and back because I have the feeling that I am the only non-suit-wearing person in the whole City. But on my way back from work I was so lost in thoughts that I missed my Tube station, I was walking and walking and at some point I didn't recognize the buildings anymore and I figured that I was already as Cannon Street Station. Well whatever.
Don't have anything more to tell today, too tired. Have to get up at 4 tomorrow (and Thursday and Friday :( ) But I'm off in the weekend to do some things. Buying some stuff for the room, buying a new friend for my lovely dead plant which I inheritated. Corinna and I called her Dörte. If you know what dörr means, you can imagine what it looks like.
