GBI London: Week 1

IMG_6607So far I love London! I am living in Longridge Flats in Earl’s Court with four other lovely flatmates! Three of my flatmates go to University of Pittsburgh and my other flatmate attends the University of Minnesota. All of us get along and are respectful- so no complaints here! I love the location of my flat! First, I am in a safe neighborhood and its only a ten minute walk to the CAPA center. What I like best about Earl’s Court is all of the different restaurants and shops along Earl’s Court Road. All of the different food choices really represent how diverse the city is. There are not many challenges with living here, but I have had to make some minor adjustments. The space in the flat is a lot smaller than homes back in the States and its still strange to me that we do not have a dryer! Although everything is a bit more compact, our flat has a cute kitchen and living room area which is great for doing homework and hanging out with my flatmates!
