London – Day 5

I started out today with errands. I went to a shopping center not far to go to a Boots (which is like a Walgreens). I could not find it, so I went into another drugstore called Superdrug to pick up shampoo, conditioner, hand soap etc. There is also a large Waitrose in the center. Waitrose is like Whole Foods, so on the expensive side but I went in to look around. And thank goodness I finally found a large grocery store. I plan on going back later this week. I decided to walk out of the shopping center through a different exit and what do you know…there was Boots! Of course, after I had bought everything I needed. At least I know where it is for next time.

After dropping off my bags at home I walked around my neighborhood, through to see where school is. Sotheby’s is on Bedford Square. The square was built in 1775 for rich people, it is still a private garden. Which is strange to me…in the middle of a square is a garden, with a gate under lock and key. I didn’t go into school but I know where to go tomorrow!

I continued walking on and decided to stop in the British Museum. It was lovely, and so much to look at. I of course visited the Rosetta Stone and I liked all the old clocks! It was nice to stop in for about an hour and get a feel of it so I can go back again and know what I want to see. It is about a 10 minute walk from my apartment, so there is no good reason not to go back.

From there I walked down Oxford Street. I thought for some reason it was different than what I saw. Maybe I wasn’t in the right section but I pictured small boutiques, book stores, but it was a pretty major street with Burger King and Subway. I headed home and stopped in a stationary store on the way to pick up a 2013 planner. Tonight I have been preparing for being in school again! Writing down all my classes and preparing my bag for the morning. I’m looking forward to having the first day be over.
