Trip Start Jul 26, 2005
74Trip End Nov 01, 2005
From this paul went to work and me and dan went back to the underground to head to Greenwich. The hostel St Christophers was based above a pub which has a pretty good atmosphere (the pub i mean) and after settling in, then downstairs for a few beers we went for a walk around Greenwich. Greenwich is a pretty nice place and we discovered some random huge ship, later i found out it was the infamous Cutty Sark which has been around for nearly one and a half centuries! Unfortunatly the weather was crap and started to rain. So went back to get some tea. Had burger and chips - it was quite nice, but i didnt realise the price as you see the Pound symbol and still kinda relate it to the aussie dollar, but heh, you have to times it by 2.4 first - eek. I kinda ended up feeling it a bit as the lady kept serving me massive stein's? or something of beer instead of pints? haha i dunno, maybe i was asking for the wrong thing. Other things that amazes me are the speed at cars in which they drive at in a small street compared to back home. Our speed around our streets are so much slower, which does annoy me a little bit so maybe this is a good thing?
Overall i'm pretty stunned by today from the enormity of it all. Its hard getting my head around how modern and old at the same time all these buildings are all together along with how huge this place is. It just extends on forever. Hey... This is london - it all happends here! I look forward to seeing more!
Untill next time...
