Four days in London was the perfect break to my hectic life. Andrés and I flew off to my favourite city Thursday night and arrived, an hour later than planned, to the Swiss Cottage area of the city. I would definitely recommend staying there. It's on the Jubilee Line and is in a cute residential area with great English breakfasts for you meat-eaters. We were at Avoca House Hotel, a simple but budget enough bed and breakfast. Andrés had never been to London before - yes, really! - so I was in planning euphoria and took him to see all the sites. We started with the London Eye - which closes at 9:30- we barely made it! The timing was absolutely perfect, as we got on at dusk and it was dark out by the time we stepped off

Andrés actually took all the photos - so here is the slideshow I made of them:

We may not be back right away -- Marrakesh is next on the horizon --but we will definitely be back to see another play, or even a musical together. London's energy is unparalleled --- it was the perfect four day escape from reality. Now, off to an intense six weeks of long days planning and executing my pilot study, cramming for the DELE B2 Spanish exam and hitting the gym. Then, it's off to France with Sean and Kristin for another week long break in Bordeaux. Hasta pronto :)
