QUOTE OF THE DAY : "Do you want red sauce with that?" Dude at Burger King

SONG OF THE DAY : Cream - Crossroads

LINK OF THE DAY : Ah, How I miss Homsar.

I go, and it is done; the bell invites me.
Hear it not, Duncan; for it is a knell
That summons thee to heaven or to hell.

Good day yesterday. Good last day in London. Went on what you could call a date with this girl Sophie yesterday. Went to The Tate Modern Art gallery, St. Paul's Cathedral, and then for some Indian food. All were good. Then we headed back to the hostel pub for drinks etc. All in all it was a very good day.

Monday night was cool too. If you had told me last month that I would be sharing a pint with 4 complete strangers from all over the world... I'd say "You crazy man!" But there I was, having a Guiness with an American, an Irishman, and an Indian. Cool blokes too. Now I'm talking like a local hehe.

The American, Chris was on submarines in the US Navy for 4 years. Hunter Killer sub marines designed to kill other subs or stalk them silently. He was the Sonar Operator and he told us some crazy stories, scary stories.

The Irishman, Alan does construction work, just down in London looking for a flat. Rough, mean looking guy but he's the nicest person you'll ever talk to. Big drinker, and since he's from the West coast of Ireland he has a really thick accent. This makes it a little hard to understand what he's saying sometimes... but it's all good.

The Indian, Raj is a student. Kind of like me I guess, taking some time off to travel a bit. Cool guy, not phased at all by the hustle and bustle of London. He's from Mumbai(Bombay) after all which is like 3 times the size of London. We made sure he tried Guinness beer, The look on his face was priceless.

Those are just a few of the interesting people I've met so far. Damn I guess I've been away 2 weeks now. How time flies.

I'm about to go see The Matrix Revolutions. 2 PM show means I get to see it before most North Americans. So just remember, as you're eating breakfast, or on your way to work, or in your first period class, Will will be contentedly sitting at the Odeon in Tottenham Court watching Revolutions.

Many people have been lighting off fireworks the past week, something about Guy Fawkes. I don't know much about that guy, but I'll have to look into that I guess.

Heading up to Bambury tonight. Meeting my Grandfather's cousin Gillian for the first time. I'm going to be spending the next 6 days meeting family I've never met before. I have so many relatives here it's almost hard to believe.

After that it's off to France, and Vimy Ridge.


See you after the Matrix.
