Greetings from London's Newest Resident!

Today I became a temporary Londoner! This morning before we packed up Chris's car to bring me to London I made him watch Twilight (he had just finished the book so it was only fitting). Then we headed into London! I never understood how teenage girls cried at New Kids On The Block concerts until today. I was fighting back tears of joy as we drove into the city. I have finally made it to London!

My "flat" is a very nice single dorm room with an en suite bathroom and mini-fridge in the East End of London. It will make everyone happy to know that there is security at the gate to the residence halls.

I didn't have much time to enjoy my new flat because Chris and I had tickets to go to a recording of a BBC 4 radio comedy. It was really a fun thing to watch (though it was exceedingly HOT in the studio). The comedy was called Cabin Pressure and you can read about it
here. I've never seen a taping before, let alone a radio show taping. It was really fun to hear the banter between the actors, especially when they flubbed their lines. I will have to see if there's a way for me to get the programme on my computer at home because it's quite clever. I love that the BBC still produces radio shows.

I haven't decided what I will do with myself tomorrow on my first full London day. I need to pull out my "London post-its" to see what I want to do on a day with a 20% chance of rain. I already have my oyster card (tube discount pass) so I'm ready to go.
