A Day in the Life

My new home is a bit different than what I’m used to. When I showed up I was lost among the 15+ textile shops that line my street. Thankfully, there is a local supermarket under my building and I was able to ask an attendant where to go. I wandered up three flights of stairs to find Flat 9. There are 5 of us in a 2 bedroom flat on the top floor of the building. Living spaces are a bit tight for in the western part of London (it is a city of 8+ million people after all), but I was blessed with some great girls for roommates. Three girls are from Rollins College near Orlando in Florida and one girl is from SUNY Oswego. We all share 2 bathrooms, 1 washer, and 0 driers. Ive found that they don’t really believe in the “go big or go home” mentality here in Europe. We use drying racks to save energy, switches to turn on and off the outlets, and efficient eco-friendly infrastructure (mostly). I think what I like best about London so far is the ability to move around the city so quickly and easily. There are hundreds of buses, at least 8 different tube lines, and black cabs/Ubers available at the press of a button. I’ll keep you updated on my adventure. So far, so good.
Cheers!
