First Days In London

It was so exhilarating to land in Heathrow!  I spent the next hour attempting to find an uber/cab/anything with four wheels please…. and breathed a huge sigh of relief when I made it to my student accommodation.  My phone’s battery died just as I stepped through the doors.


This is where I had my first meal in London!  It is on Pratt street which makes me think of everyone back in Brooklyn.


I bought some proper blankets!


The National Portrait Gallery was high on my list of places to visit.


A small french cafe in Pimlico.



Each bridge is so different!  I liked this pink one and the shadows that it cast on the road.


I went on an extra nerdy tour of the Houses of Parliament.


The city was beautifully lit up after I left!


Tate Britain was gorgeous!  I couldn’t bring myself to leave.  There have been musicians playing inside the galleries of many of the museums I have visited.  Listening to live music  inspired by paintings is so impactful.



This is the book I’m reading at the moment.  It has been nice to have a calming activity while getting used to the madness of a new and exciting city.

To the right of the photo is a TURMERIC LATTE!!!  I have a new favourite drink.
