Day 1-London Arrival 6/3/07

Arrive at flats 10:00 am

Well we are finally here. All our travels went very smoothly and we are all anxious to explore the city.
Our flats are absolutely amazing. Located on 31 Southampton row right in the center of this bustling city in the financial district, we are a block away from the central line tube stop named Holborn. I know I will not be living in such a luxurious place like this for a long time or maybe ever again. We have the whole fifth floor to ourselves and are above an office building. The flats appear brand new, clean and have 3 beautiful balconies.

We all want to explore the city but are all so tired. However there is plenty of time and so much to look forward to in the next 5 weeks.

Rachel is teaching me all the differences in language such as
water closet=bathroom

One thing I have realized today is how amazingly clean and organized everything is here such as the tube, grocerie stores and their coinage system. It's all very easy to adjust to.
