As of a few hours ago I landed in Gatwick, London. The only things I forgot to get were 1- international calling. Luckily the airport gives 90 free minutes of wifi. and 2- since my flight was delayed I wont have enough time to make it to St. Paul’s Cathedral. IF I wanted to rush I probably could have made it…. I don’t want to get stuck in a foreign country.
Besides that here’s what I have learned so far. I met this young woman named Charlotte who lives in downtown Paris. She is an art major who is looking into getting an internship in New York. I asked for her contact information and she agreed to show me around Paris when I am there. I learned that her parents live in Texas and she was in L.A. on vacation. Above all I’m not totally sure if we will be getting into contact. I learned, however, that I shouldn’t be afraid to talk to new people on this trip. I met another person who I was sitting next to who drew the way around the area that I was looking to go to here in London. Unfortunatly…. I will not be able to use this itinerary on this trip. I will use it next time. She was a travel agent who specialized in marketing to the elderly for trips in Europe.
All in all ill be waiting to print my ticket. I have one confession…. I never thought I would know the feeling of being embarrassed about trying to put an outlet into the wall. These young men sitting next to me had a good laugh at my fumbling.
