London Weekend!

First things first.  3eedkum imbarak!! 🙂

I took the train up to London this weekend to visit Mirim, and I had a blast.  Jenna and her sister came from the city as well so it was kind of like a small reunion!  It was so so so good to see them!

I walked around so much this weekend that my calves hurt, in one day me and Mirim walked the equivalent of 11 KM (she has a step counter on her fone and it tells you how much you walked).  Yes it is quiet a lot of walking.  I woke up the next day with really achy calves.

The weather in London was gorgeous and sunny (allah itamem!!!)

One of my sorority sisters is in london for her masters also, she was one of the older sisters, and I saw her when I was in London, I have not seen her in 2 and a half years!  My other friend from MN is in london also, I have not seen him in ages too but I will see him next time i go inshala.

While walking on Regent Street we saw this guy that was on the ground bleeding from his mouth and nose, I don’t know from where else though, he was on the ground and someone was trying to help him while waiting for the ambulance.  I don’t know what happened to him, it was so scary though cuz there was blood underhim tooo. 

Also it is really expensive here!!!!!!!

We went to mcdonalds for a quick meal one of the days and I wasn’t that hungry but I knew that if I saw the girls eating I would want to eat also, so I ask Mirim if she wanted to share a sandwich.  We got the Chicken Legend and then I realized I wanted it cut in half, so I asked the cashier if they could cut it in half. 

He looked like I had asked him what the square root of 376 was or something, everyone got really confused for some reason, I just wanted it to be cut in half.  So after 5 minutes of confusion they give me my sandwich back, and it is only HALF of the sandwich.  I got really frustrated so Mirim went up to the cashier and asked him where the other half of our sandwich was, and they ended up giving us another one.  We couldn’t stop laughing at how they got so confused when I asked them to cut it in half!!! We had an extra half after they gave us the new one, so we gave it to a random homeless person.  I have pictures but I don’t feel like uploading them right now, so maybe later! 🙂
